Cyndie, I send the pix from my phone to my email, open them there, save them to my pictures and add them from that. :) There should be a little arrow with a dot on both open ends on your phone pix you click that and can send from there.

Only 4 more weeks for you to work! I'm so excited for you! :) I know you will love it!

HUGS!

Susi, I'm happy for you and Greg that it was sunny there. It rained here again today. I looked in the paper. We're above average this year on rain and snow.

Another great Christmas tree! I know how to take pictures with my phone. Where I run into problems is trying to transfer from my phone to my computer.

I spent today getting ready for the work week. I'm excited that this is my last December as a woman who works outside the home!

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Cyndie, it was sunny today! :) Of course Greg worked outside most of the afternoon I got my cleaning done this morning and then took a nap. :) I really need to get my shower soon. LOL!

Here is the tree for the living room

Thank you Cyndie. :) I'll get a pix of the other one today. I'm not good with a camera either, but with this phone it's pretty good about stabilizing when I take the pix so it doesn't come out too blurry. Otherwise it would always be a mess. LOL!

Nope, no more hot dates to the grocery. :) We have times when we really don't want to go so Greg just picks something up for the day each day for a while. :) Of course though we will have snacks here. LOL!

Susi, your tree is gorgeous! You know I'm not good with my camera. I'll see what I can do. I'm sorry to hear about your idiot next door! The orange snow fence sounds like a plan!

I do agree with you about me and Jimmy doing things we've never had time to do. Imagine, we won't have to have our hot grocery date on Saturday. LOL

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Cyndie, I got both my trees finished today. :) This is the snowman one, for some reason the bottom didn't show up. I haven't taken a pix of the other one yet, I'll post that tomorrow.

The idiot next door did it again and blew a load of leaves in our yard. I'm so dang mad! Greg isn't happy but he still cleaned them up and most of them weren't even ours. He said you can't win with people like him.

I know that's true but still. GRR! He said next year he will put up one of those orange snow fences even though he'll probably just throw them over it. I'm pushing for a privacy fence but I don't think I'll win that one. :(

Cyndie, that was so special of the company to send you a retirement card! :) You and Jimmy should start a scrapbook. :)

What I did for Greg for retirement was fill one on his bucket list of going to a race. Maybe think of some place you've always wanted to visit but never had the time and go there. :)

It think dad's PT was fun, but he sure didn't. He doesn't have to do any again till Monday and by Tuesday when we go I hope he's over it.

HUGS!

Missy, Jimmy's job took his impending departure well. So far, we still don't have any exciting plans. Keep up the good work on making it to the gym!

Susi, I'm glad that your visit with your dad went pretty well. The physical therapy session sounds like it was pretty fun!

I got a card today from the underwriters of one of the companies that we write for. They were wishing me a happy retirement. I thought was very sweet!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, I do hope your day with the kiddos stayed good. As for dad...meh...He had a PT session today while we were there and wasn't happy at all about it. He did good though, but complained a lot when the therapist left. I just let him blow off.

I got to play ball with his for his session. Hehe! He was standing so the therapist needed to be right beside him in case he would start to fall, so I got to toss it back and forth with him. :)

I never did get my nap today. I worked on the tree when we got home and Greg worked on the leaves since all the snow is gone. Then the lady who is doing our grave blankets now called, they were ready, so we went and got them and took them to the cemeteries. It feels good that they are on now. :)

I'm glad YOU'RE getting shopping done, as for Papabear, maybe just give him money for something he bought for himself and tell him that's his Christmas from you. LOL! Oh, I know you wouldn't do that but it's funny. Hehe!

I'm glad you're going to the gym again tonight. :) Make the best of it by singing in your head while you're on the treadmill or take a player with you and listen to your favorite music. :)

My plans for the weekend is to finish the trees and set a few knick knacks out and clean on Sunday and go to the grocery. Exciting huh? LOL!

Two little kidos today... it's gonna be a good day!!! Hoping it's good for you all also!

Susi... Hoping your weather is okay today for driving to see your Daddy! I also hope he's in a really good mood!!! Maybe the "it's Friday" happy mood most people have, rubs off on him!!! hee hee

I was reading your post and as I read "yawn" I started up... just did it again!! Is it one of those words if you read it or say it, it happens?!?! haa haa Maybe after your visit to your dad you can have a nap... start decorating your tree, then a nap again... oh, must be me who wants the naps.
emoticon

Have fun on your food shopping "date", hee hee!

Auntie Cyndie... 32 days... and some weekend?!?!! That's awesome!!! I'm so excited for you and Jimmy!!! How is his work taking him leaving? Hope it went well for him too (telling his company). Like Susi ask, are you planning something for yourselves?!! Is Kim all excited for you two? I'm sure she is!

Have a good last 31st day at work Auntie!!! emoticon emoticon

We did get out and get some shopping done. I got a good chunk done! I was getting family and the cubs done and Papabear was shopping for himself...aaagghhhh. That guy is worst then a girl!!! hee hee. He even bought another pain of shoes!!! haa haa

Tonight is the gym. NOT looking forward to it, but will do it!!!

Missy, I will give dad your message today. :) I hope he's in a good mood.

I'm so glad the kids were pretty good for you yesterday! And especially that today will be an easy day for you. :) At least you know the weekend is here after the leave today. Hehe!

I laid back down and woke up at 5, now I can't seem to get rolling. All I want to do is keep yawning. :(

I hope you were able to get the cubs Christmas finished. I would tell everyone that if they didn't give you the list by a certain date, they will just have to settle for what you get them. Hehe! That should make they get it to you faster. :)

What..no hot date at the grocery this weekend? We'll need to have ours. I fixed a pan of cheese burritos last night and tonight we'll have the left overs and a side salad. That's about the end of it for us, so we'll have to go soon. Try to enjoy going to the gym! I know it's not easy but we know you can do this. :)

Cyndie, we're supposed to have a heat wave coming in, today it's supposed to get to 47 and by Sunday 59. Of course then it's heading back down again to the 30's. I hate it when we get teased like that. :(

By the time we go to visit dad it will probably be raining, that's in the mix and the down side of the warmer weather.

That 32 days will go fast for you! :) If you don't count the weekends it will go even faster. :) I can't wait till you have the freedom you both deserve! Have you decided if you will do something special for your retirement?

HUGS!

Missy, this is a crazy November when it comes to weather. Last night our news said this is our 5th coldest November ever. I'm glad to hear that things went well with the kiddoes today!

Susi, as always PJ Day sounds awesome! I'm happy for you that you didn't have to go out in the bad weather. I hope the weather is good when you go to your dad's tomorrow!

I had another good day at work today. Someone asked me how many days I have until I retire. I counted them. Including weekends, it's 32 days!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Quick stop in before making dinner. Just warming up some of my homemade soup, so it's an easy dinner tonight.

PJ day sounds great Susi!! I'm so due for one of those!!! One sure sign of having my period is I'm SO tired at times! This morning it was SO hard to get up!!! I could of used a PJ day also, hee hee.

Okay, Tuesdays and Fridays... got it! I'm sure he'll be happy to see you tomorrow! Hope he's in a good mood! Tell him I said hello!!! emoticon

You know what, the children were pretty good today! I'll take it!!! hee hee B never ended up taking a morning nappy and was pretty good. The rest were good. Happy Friday's Eve, hee hee, like Cyndie says!

Auntie Cyndie... you enjoying GH?!?! Hope today was a good working day for you!

Have a good evening ladies. Tonight is Christmas shopping with Papabear. Hoping to get the Cubs done!! Though I'm still waiting on Older Cub's list... gggrrrr. Gym tomorrow!!! Food wise, I'm still doing good, so I'm happy.

Hoping everyone else is happy too! emoticon

No sun here today Missy. :( It stayed cold and even snowed pretty hard, but only for about a 1/2 hour. I stayed in my jammies all day. Hehe! I did work some on the trees though, but my shoulder hurts when I raise it too much. :( I'm getting there. :)

Sorry to hear about the lady with all the water, and the expense. :( I do so remember when ours kept doing that a LOT and we were almost 24/7 with the shop vacs cleaning it up for a good while, It's rough!

No visiting today we'll be doing Tues and Fri's now through winter.

I hope the kids were as good for you as you wanted today, well, with the one exception of outbursts. :) At least you should have a good day tomorrow.

HUGS!

Morning ladies!

Auntie Cyndie... Glad you are not giving in and staying there to work part time! I know you liked them and your job, so it'll be hard, but think of you and Jimmy. And if you don't have to work, don't! Enjoy your retirement!!! So play the "maybe I'll work" with them, but make sure they are still looking really hard to replace you!!! I'm proud of you!!!

Like Susi said, I hope it's a good day today for you!!! Are you counting down the days yet?!?! hee hee.

Susi... I've seen that squirrel picture too! Perfect for your pie making day! I'm glad Greg can enjoy the humor of the squirrels and not get mad at you bugging him. As long as you never bring a real one home as a pet, I think he'll be good, hee hee.

I hope you are having sunshine like we are today! Some times it's nice to have the sub in your face. They were saying this is the most rain we have had in YEARS! Papabear was telling me about a co-worker. She has flooding in her finished basement. She had to stop at $3000 of paying servpro for sucking up the water coming in. I guess she never gets water in there. Feel bad for her.

Are you visiting your Dad? I think you said what days you are now going, but I forgot. If you are, I hope it's a good visit! And enjoy finishing decorating your trees!!!

Auntie Cyndie... you have to share a picture of your tree too! Doesn't matter how big or small they are, I want to see... hee hee.

Have a full house today... B, A, D, & LMFP. So far it's going pretty well. B is having moments, but it's Thursday and he doesn't come of Fridays, so it's all good! WooHoo.
Oh, with A's new schedule (twice a week) that means my Fridays will be easy!!! Just LMFP and D... hummm, that's nice!!!

I'll be back ladies. Have to feed B and want to email my Mom back. HUGS...

Missy, I will be working on the trees today. :) I do so love my snowman tree! The one in the living room gets all kinds of different things on it. :) I've taken to putting big stuffed things on the trees and I really like that. Hehe!

Oh Cyndie, that is a crappy thing for your bosses to do to you. :( I do hope you don't agree to it. I know you will be sorry if you do. My Aunt Elsie did that, they made her an offer she couldn't refuse and she's still there...tearing her hair out and really regretting it.

Life just wouldn't be half good here if I didn't bug Greg about the squirrels. LOL! On Wednesday before Thanksgiving I had found a squirrel pix of them dressed as pilgrims with a fork and it said, we heard you had pecan pie. LOL! He got a kick out of that since it was the day I made the pies. Hehe!

I'm glad work was a bit better yesterday and I sure hope it's even better today.

Missy, unfortunately, you're right, my bosses have asked me to work part-time. I wasn't expecting that. I pretended to consider it, but truthfully when I leave, I plan to be done!

Susi, I admire you for doing trees! All I do is one tabletop one. I'm glad to hear that you're still giving Greg a hard time about the squirrels!

Today was a better day at work. I know you ladies are right, it only takes one person to fill the position. As you know, I've liked working there, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for them!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Hello Susi... and Cyndie...

Taking your tie with the trees is just fine. As long as you enjoy yourself Susi! Can't wait to see them... especially the snowman one!
emoticon emoticon

I remember it snowing on Halloween and even after April Fools day! Actually, one year we were so nervous about Little Cub's birthday and it's April 20th! The snow did melt the week before his party! It is crazy how it is... scary!

My goal is to do three nights of going to the gym at least! I can do more, but at least the three. My life can get so busy at times, so I think that is being fair, so I can do all that has to be done.

Auntie Cyndie... I'm sure you figured out on GH who is in the bed at Jordan's wedding, but if not, don't read till you watch today's show.

I had to look up why Kiki was leaving the show and this is what I found out...
Kiki Jerome has been through an awful lot in her young life on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but the beleaguered heroine ultimately met a tragic fate. The character was introduced in May of 2013 and was originally played by Kristen Alderson, but in February of 2015, Hayley Erin took over the role. Despite insisting she would try to do GH and her upcoming role on the primetime series PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: THE PERFECTIONISTS at the same time, Erin was written out of the soap in November of 2018.

Missy, it would have been nice if you had a call about the guys coming to fix the leaning tank. But I guess at least they hadn't forgotten about it.

I sure hope you didn't have the 3rd blow out with one of the kids. I think you'll be very happy when you can retire too. :) No more fussy pants. Hehe!

I have the lights on and lit, but that's all so far, I'm taking my good old time with the trees. :) Yes, of course I will do the snowman tree! I kind of gave up on the little squirrel tree though. I just lost some interest in it. :( But that won't stop me from bugging him about squirrels! LOL!

The flurries did finally stop. I actually remember when it was normal for the snow to be in Nov through mid Feb, but then at least we did have some real Fall before that. Greg would have all the leaves up and gone by early Oct too. Times are changing and it's scary. I can't remember what passage it is, but in the Bible there is one about not being able to tell one season from the next.

You deserve your 2 skip nights off. You're doing good, just stay consistent. :)

Hello ladies...
Running a little late today. Had a poop blowout with B and he took a HUGE fit! All because parents can't put diapers on correctly!!! GGGRRR.

Then the company that fills our propane tanks came. I knew they were not the people coming to fix the heat, so what the?!? I guess last time they came to fill them they noticed them leaning, so they came to fix it. BUT someone was supposed to call us and never did?!!? HUMMM... Anywho, since the furnace isn't working, he couldn't straighten the tanks, so he'll come back.

Guess what... poop blowout number two... with LMFP! That leaves one more child... pleas no!!! MOVING ON...

Auntie Cyndie... Sorry you had a busy day. At least there are less days to come like that!!! Like Susi said, it just takes one to fill your spot. I just hope they find someone, so you won't feel bad leaving them. I hope they don't talk you into staying part time or something till they find someone?!! I have TWO friends who did that!

Hoping today is better for you!

Susi... can't wait to see your trees. I wasn't sure if you were putting the snowman one up again! It should be a snowman and squirrel tree, hee hee.

Our tanks are leaning due to the chipmunks or mole we have! I'm on Greg's side right now with those pest!

Hope your snow has stopped and we are done for a while! Usually when you get snow, we get something shortly after... rain snow, mix! Nope it goes down south of me!

It was hard getting to the gym again last night, but we did it! Tonight is a skip night. I have my Ministry meeting. Thursday is a skip night too... Christmas shopping. But Friday is back to the gym! My arms are sore, but I know that's good! Thank-you ladies for the support! Love you!

Well the D is up and ready for a bottle. I'll be back later...
Have a good day ladies!

P.S. I started this post at 8:45am and am finishing it now at 10:37am! CRAZY!

Missy, the baseboard heat wouldn't do us any good if the power was off, we're all electric here. :( The one year it was off for 3 days because of a really bad ice storm, we pretty much lived downstairs in front of the fireplace. It was rough though.

That sure is a long time to wait till next Tuesday. :( Of course there may be some who don't even have alternative heat, so you are very lucky.

The trees are only set up and I will decorate them today. I'll post pictures after they are finished. We got some more snow so there's another skift out there, there is some on the streets this time but not much at all, at least so far.

Yes, we are very proud of you for going back to the gym! :) Hang in there, we know you can do this!! I do love the pix of your tree!


Cyndie, so sorry you had a lot of work waiting on you. :( Hopefully you will get through it quickly and out of the way. Maybe the person who responded to the ad is the perfect one to take the job. You'll have to let us know how it works out.

I plan on staying in today. :) I'll be working on the trees. I was up in the night but went back to bed and just woke back up a little after 4. :)

Missy, we are so proud of you for going to the gym! We are also happy to hear that your TOM is FINALLY better! We will also be praying that all of our finances improve!

Susi, I'm so happy for you that you had well-behaved snow. That's the best kind! I'm glad to hear that Greg is staying inside!

I did have a lot to do at work, but such is life. So far, my bosses have only had one response to their ad. We'll see what happens!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Hello Susi! Going to start dinner, but wanted to stop in first!

I'm VERY happy Greg stayed indoors again! It must be so hard for people like him who love being outdoors! Good he has some "projects" to do inside too.

We are very lucky. Being near a local school and nursing home, if we loose power, it's back on quickly! Hope it's a good winter for us all and no power lossage... at least, if it does happen, not for long!!!

Still trying very hard to stay positive about getting to the gym. We will and I'll hate it, but I can do this!!! I can do this... I will do this!

The furnace guy is coming next Tuesday. We are very lucky to have both, forced hot air and electric baseboards. We have a small house, so running the one in the living room and one bedroom is working fine right now. Little cub's room I'd be afraid something from his mess, would fall on the heater, so we keep that one off. Our room right now is making the smoke alarm going off, so I don't know what is up with that. I cleaned it too, and still happening. Our kitchen one stopped working last year and Papabear hasn't changed it yet, and the bathroom one never worked.

I know we won't end up on the streets, hee hee. Just feels like that some days!

Don't forget to post pictures of your tree(s) Susi! Love seeing them!

Here's mine...


I decorated the porches outside over the weekend and the cubs (mostly Little Cub) did the tree in our front yard. I'll have to get a picture soon and share that some other time.

Time to make dinner...
TTFN ladies... Hope it was a good day!

Missy, it started snowing here again. So far it isn't too bad, but it's so cold out. :( It was nice to get back home and stay in. Greg went to Walmart to get a couple things but at least he didn't try to work outside. :)

My friend in Chicago is fine. :) She does know a few there though that it made their power go out and they may not get it back till Thursday. :( I hope they at least can get some space heaters or something.

I'm glad you made it to the gym last night and hope you get there again today. :) I do remember the exercising at that time, it's worrisome at times for sure. :( It did always help my moods and also the cramps though. Of course everyone is so different.

Yikes on your furnace going off. :( I'm just glad you have an alternative source! We have baseboard heaters along with our furnace but we seldom use them, they are expensive to run and most of them have stopped working. I hope your furnace is an easy fix.

You won't be living on the streets. :) I know but we feel like that sometimes with all the bills and such now days.

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Tuesday?!?!?

Yesterday was a CRAZY day!!! I was trying to text my sister make all day and email my Mom, but never got to it. I WILL do it today, hee hee.

Auntie Cyndie... Hoping your work load wasn't too bad?!! Just think, soon you'll be free from that Monday day! WooHoo!!! I can't wait for you!!!

Susi... glad your snow behaved! We had a snow-rain mix over the night. This morning it's like a slushy out there!!! But it's supposed to be in the 40's so hope over night it doesn't freeze! Think I would rather have the "s" word then this slush mess!

Sadly, you are probably right about the "falling on deaf ears"! I hope they both do help you... but do it more for your Dad!!! It's him who would probably love to see them.

Hope your friend is safe is Chicago!

I did go to the gym! It was so weird to be there again! Some of the same people working out to, so I guess they have been being good, hee hee. I did my 55 minutes. I could feel my period, so the last five minutes I spent in the bathroom checking, aaagghh. BUT I was lucky! This procedure they did seems to be really helping! The schedule is all off, but that should work it's self out they say. The flow is much better and I was happy I could still work out! Planning on going tonight too! Don't get me wrong, I hated it, but know it's for the better, so I'm doing this!
emoticon

So over the long weekend my Jeep's heat stopped working on the driver's side. Last year it was the passenger side. GGGRRRR. And now last night, our heat for the house, would not kick on! It was trying, but didn't work! Papabear shut it off! We have the electric heat still in our house, so put those on. Because they haven't been working, they were dusty, so the fire alarm went off. It was a very interesting night for us. I think around 1am I was able to sleep! Hoping it's an easy fix for the heat today! As for my Jeep, Papabear has the part, just need a rain free day!

Between doctor's bills and stuff keep breaking I'm getting very depressed here! I'm trying to stay positive, but it's hard! I know this shall pass, I just hope I'm not living on the streets when it finally does, hee hee. Positive thoughts!!! Positive Thoughts!!!
emoticon

I hope you all have a good day! I will try VERY hard to get back today! But for now, I have to do snackie time with the kidos! Have a good morning ladies!!!

Cyndie believe me you will love not having to go out in the winter unless you want to. :) Of course there's always the hot date at the grocery. :) Now there's apps you can have your food brought to you. Hehe!

I sure hope the pile on your desk isn't too high. It would be nice if someone would do it for you. :) Like the elf on a shelf or something. :)

I'm glad you didn't get anymore than the 2 inches of snow, I hope no more got there over night. I know a friend of mine in Chicago got at least 8 inches of it. :( We had some yesterday but it was a well behaved one and just got a dusting on the grass and vehicles. :)

Susi, I started this before, but it disappeared (sad face). I'm happy to hear that Greg is feeling better. I'm also happy that you're cutting back on visiting your dad to twice a week. I look forward to staying in from the winter weather once 2018 is over!

Missy, it's good to have you back! Friendsgiving sounds awesome. It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday weekend! I'm sorry that your TOM is back, but at least you know what you're up against!

We did get the 2 inches of snow that was forecast. I was happy to stay home. I did get all of the Christmas decorating done. I even finished the Christmas cards. Now it's off to work tomorrow to see how things have piled up.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, thank you for the link to the turkey breast. When I have turkey I want to ONLY taste the flavor of the meat so I don't put onions or any spices on it. Well, I do use some butter, salt and pepper but that's all. I guess those are spices. LOL!

Kelly said she was going to talk to TJ about visiting with dad more, but I'm sure that'll fall on deaf ears. We'll be doing Tues and Fri's for a while. :)

It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday too. :) Hate the OC had to go back already though. I know you enjoyed him while he was home. :)

Are you going to the gym tonight? :)

It started flurrying a little while ago now it's a regular snow. :( I don't like it, don't want it and I'm sending it to Australia! LOL! Sure wish it was that simple. :) Did you get much? One of my spark friends in Chicago is having a real mess there. :(

HUGS!

Good morning ladies!!!
Sounds like everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! emoticon emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... So glad your Mom had a wonderful 83rd birthday! Happy you got to spend it with her!!! I'm sure she was super happy too! Time out with the ladies, sounded great too! I'm sure your Dad and Jimmy enjoyed their football and pool playing time! Great long weekend! Soon all days will be like weekends for you and Jimmy! WooHoo!

Susi... the crockpot turkey sounds great! I get the recipes from SP and they had a crockpot turkey breast... recipes.sparkpeople.com/reci

Glad your Daddy was in a good mood and you were able to enjoy your visit! Also happy he is okay with the cut down to two days! That will be good for you and Greg to not be driving in the winter weather! Of course... I know this won't happen... but your sisters could pick up some days too. gggrrrr... What days are you going? Or you just playing the weeks day by day?!?

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thursday with my in-law side. It was nice. Annoyed we were at my SIL's house not my MIL's, but it was still good. I made the turkey and everyone said it was really good, so that was great! hee hee.

Friday we did a Friendsgiving. We bought the turkey, but they cooked it. He's a chef, so it was probably better he did, hee hee. It was a good night with friends! Saturday was decorating the tree and lights outside. Then we did this stroll night for local stores, restaurants. Did that with some friends and it was really nice!

Sunday church and goodbyes to Older Cub... food shopping, and cleaning the house. Getting ready for the week back to working, aaaahhhhh.

Glad everyone had a good weekend!!!
I was so annoyed with tummy pains the last few weeks. Then with the constant eating from Wednesday to Sunday... I'm ready to get my *ss to the gym!!! I put the three days on the calendar... Monday Tuesday, & Friday... and we are going!!! I started spotting today, so now I know my tummy pains were cramps and that makes me feel better... I was REALLY getting worried. But we are doing this... if I like it or not, hee hee! I gained a pound each day!!! I normally don't weigh myself each day like that, but I have been SO bloated... again, now I know why... but over the weekend I didn't know and did NOT like it!!!

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

Cyndie, I'm so glad you got to spend both birthdays with your parents. :) I miss my mom on hers, even though many times we didn't see eye to eye, she was still my mom and I did love her. At least we can be with dad on his. :)

The left overs is why I still do Thanksgiving here even though we had it with my Aunt and Uncle. :)

Greg's doing okay, he has a cough but it's starting to get better. :) Right now he's been re-doing a few of his clocks, changing the faces on them to make them fancier. He does that now and then. He does have plans to paint the bedroom and living room but I doubt he will for a while yet.

Nascar starts back in February. I don't know yet what the date is, but there are times it lands on my birthday. I'm okay with that though cause we still go out to eat at least the day before or he fixes dinner for me. :)

It's kind of nice knowing I'm having today off. I'm going to go back to bed here shortly.

HUGS!

Susi, it's good to be back home in the Valley!

My mom did have a wonderful birthday. I thought Jimmy and I wouldn't be able to leave until Thursday morning, I was happy that I got to be with both of my parents for their birthdays this year.

I really like Thanksgiving leftovers. That is one of the things I miss about going away for the holiday.

How is Greg doing? What is he doing now that NASCAR is on hiatus? When do they start back again?

Hugs?

Cyndie, it's so good to see you back! I've missed you and I've been lonely in here.

It sure sounds like you had a wonderful time. :) I'm sure your mom had a wonderful birthday too! Thank you for giving her our birthday wishes, and I assume hugs and kisses to both of them. :) I didn't know it was her birthday till your last post.

I do love a good turkey sandwich with mayo and cheese. Hehe! We still have some left overs and I think we'll finish them up tonight, I don't like keeping them too long.

It looks like Jimmy and your dad enjoyed each other too. :) I'm glad your cousin was there to share it with all of you! :)

Linda, as always, it's good to see you on here!

Susi, your turkey breast in the crockpot sounds awesome! I might have to check that out. I'm happy to hear that you and Greg had a good Thanksgiving! I think some foods taste better as leftovers!

I took birthday greetings to my mom from my Gal Pals. She was happy about that! Our holiday weekend consisted of "the meal", shopping and eating out for me, my mom and my cousin from Baltimore. Jimmy and my dad played pool and watched football.

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We did, it was nice relaxing after a too big of a meal and taking a bit of a nap. Hehe! I'm still full this morning. I was so full last night I didn't even have any pie, I may have to have it for breakfast. Hehe!

I never did a turkey breast in the crockpot before and it was sooooo good and moist it almost melted in our mouth. That will be the way I do it from now on for sure. :)

Dad was in a good mood yesterday, I thought he was going to argue, but I cut him off at the pass and he let it go. :) I told him we weren't coming today, already been there 3 times this week. And I let him know next week we will be doing only 2 days a week till Spring when it warms up some. He was okay with that. :)

Plenty of leftovers here so supper only has to be warmed up, easy. :)

Susi, it's great that you've cut your visits down to twice a week! I'm looking forward to being out less once I retire! I'm happy to hear the good news about Greg!

Missy, thanks for sharing that Older Cub made it home safe and sound! Susi's right, we always worry! I'm glad that LMFP is outgrowing her nickname!

I will give my parents hugs and kisses from you! Would you believe my mom turns 83 tomorrow?!? "See" you when I get back!

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hug!

Missy, I'm so glad OC made it home okay! I knew he would. :)

I sure hope LMRFP settled down for you today finally. Just think of not having them for a few days. :)

We will visit with dad tomorrow then again on Thanksgiving in the morning. I'm thinking we'll take Friday off though. I told him we would be going to only visiting 2 days a week during this cold weather and that was okay with him. He wants us to stay safe and warm and not be out anymore than we have to. :)

Greg got his stitches out today and it looks really good. Unless you knew that skin tag was by his eye you can't even tell there was ever anything there. :)

Yes, it's snowing again!!! Looks pretty, but I still don't want it, hee hee.

I woke up at 5am and got ready for the day... then out to shovel, came in and cut up veggies, wished Little Cub and Papabear good days as they left for school and work, welcomed the children in for the day, and now finally am sitting down to rest... and B is here today and hasn't STOPPED crying since she dropped him off!!! I'm thinking he's gonna earn the name "Little Mister Fussy Pants"... gggrrrr. Today will be a good day. Today will be a good day. Today will be a good day.

Auntie Cyndie... enjoy your "Fri-Tuesday"!!! Hope it goes well and you have safe travels to see your parents. I'm assuming that is where you are going?!! No need to count calories on Thanksgiving because it's all turkey and veggies, right?!!? hee hee Have a wonderful and blessed day!!!
emoticon emoticon

Susi... I remember your neighbor and how he's sick in the head or something! Just sad you have to deal with it all! Well Greg.
emoticon

Thank-you for what you said about my cubs and how they are raised. I really appreciate it. You are too kind Susi!!! (hugs) Like they say... it takes one to know one... it take a nice kind person to know a nice kind person! (wink)

Are you visiting your Dad tomorrow?!? Hoping his mood is still good!

They didn't cancel, as you might of figured out. I am down two babies though... the one who got sick yesterday and D, he stayed home with his Grandpa! I REALLY wish it was B who stayed home!!! gggrrrrr. LMFP is doing great and actually enjoyable that I should change her nick name, hee hee, but we all know her as that, so. But I'm happy she is being good. I'll let B fussy some more, then off to nappy!!!

Older Cub said he was finishing packing up and then will be heading home. Looking forward to seeing him!!!

Okay, well have to feed B and then get him to bed! I think I'd done with him!!!

Hoping you all have a good day! Be safe, and I'll be back later!

Missy, last year before the big fight, Greg had gone in his back yard to clean up the leaves that fell over there. Oh well. Even the guy who went and talked to him when we were going to get our tree cut down said the man had a mental problem.

It would be nice if there was no school today so you could have the day off. You sure deserve it after yesterday!

OC was taught well when he was learning to drive and I'm sure he will be safe. But mamabears don't see it that way and I know you will worry anyway, that's what mamabears do! :)

I know both of your cubs will do a great job when they get into that field of work. They have the sticktoitiveness to hang in there and learn! You and Papabear taught them well!

Cyndie, I won't be counting calories on Thanksgiving either. I really don't think anyone does. :)

Have a safe trip and have fun. Remember to give the folks our hugs and kisses and a very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

HUGS!

Missy, don't admire me too much! I stayed within my calorie range for a couple of days, but all bets are off for Thanksgiving! I'm sorry that my friend isn't willing to take my job, but I can't see the new person having more time off than everyone else.

Susi, that's awful about your neighbor. It's good that Greg takes the high road! That's great that your dad was in a good mood today. More early Thanksgiving! I'm happy that you and Greg got your holiday shopping done!

Like Missy, I'm only working today and tomorrow. I'm excited! Tomorrow I have to pack. Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Yeah, today is one of those hard days when you have to clean another kids "getting sick" stuff! Glad he isn't coming tomorrow... and they are talking snow ALL day, so both Mom's came in talking like we might not have school tomorrow. Hummmm.... that would be nice!!!

I'm worried about Older Cub driving tonight or tomorrow now. Hoping it's not as bad as they are saying.

That guy IS a jerk!!! Sorry! I HATE that so much! All three of us neighbors, if that was to happen, would clean up the other's yard. Poor Greg! He's definitely the good guy!!!

Glad your Dad was in a good mood! Happy Mondays... I like how these are going!! Hoping it continues!

Sounds like you are all ready for Thanksgiving! Like you said on my QOTD, it is hard to pick what is a favorite! Enjoy!!!

Oh, and YES, Little Cub knows how it's dangerous. I think he thought it was "cool" to be one of them for a day. They made it like the children were responding to real situations. He knows it's a hard and serious kind of job and I think that is what he likes also about it.

Have a good evening! emoticon

Missy, except for the rain it was a wonderful day! :) Dad was in a really good mood and we got what we needed at the store and all is done. I was wanting to get the Jenny-O turkey loafs, but all they had was white and dark meat in them not just the white, so I got a boneless turkey breast. :) It will be good!

The idiot next door must have seen us leave yesterday, this morning there were 2 big lines of leaves in our yard, he blew the piles over here. GRRRR! He has more piles and lines raked in his yard and I'll bet he'll do the same with those. Greg isn't going to be childish like him though he went out and cleaned them up. That idiot is a mental case!

I'm glad YC enjoyed the weekend and happy it was "cool" but I'm sure he realizes the "real" thing isn't cool, it's demanding and dangerous. I'm so glad he is learning. :)

I'm glad you had an enjoyable weekend. :) I'm loving your thankful list! :)

Sorry to hear A got so sick. :( I feel bad for you having to deal with that and all the cleaning it up. Again, I just don't know how you do it.

HUGS!

Okay, so the good day turned bad... "A" got sick twice!!! Once JUST missing me, and a bit on my couch!!! The second time I had him sitting in the kitchen. I'm SICK to the smell...all I can smell... and I have cleaned it VERY well disinfected it too (more than once)!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

I did call his Mom and she came to get him. He won't be here tomorrow. I feel bad, but it was bad!!! Glad that part of my day is done... now to move on and hoping for the rest to be good!

Morning ladies! Happy Thanksgiving week!!! emoticon

Susi... so sorry to read Truex lost and to that bozo!! That makes it harder. All he can do is get ready for next season and pray he wins over that guy!! Hope Greg didn't yell at the TV too bad (hee hee).

Your early Thanksgiving dinner and day sounded very nice! Good to you for eating less! It is hard when there is so much good food there! Hope you have a visit with your Daddy and then shopping for the last items your need at the food store.

Oh, glad Greg is doing some what better. Hoping with the leaves bagged he'll be able to stay in more and get 100% soon!

Sorry about your computer problems! I HATE That... totally understand! Still finding things I lost from my last computer or whatever it was!!!

Auntie Cyndie... Good job staying in your calories when out with your friend and lunch with Jimmy! You are always so good at that! I went out with Papabear and did not. I knew what I should get, but at the last minute, made the wrong choice. It was good, but not SP friendly. Good for you!!
emoticon

Sorry your friend couldn't take the job. Papabear got offered a job a while back. It would of been going backwards... working on the machines, instead of programming them, etc... he was fine with that, but would of lost his time off. So he asked them if they would do the same/match what he had now, and they said they couldn't, so he stayed where he is. He doesn't hate it, so it was better to keep the time off. Could she ask your bosses the same?!!?Glad you got that visit in with her though. It's always nice to see old friends!

Are you going to your parents for Thanksgiving? Sorry if you said that and I missed it. Will Kim be joining you on Thanksgiving? I hope so (at home, or at your parents)?!

We had our Food Shopping Date night too, hee hee. Hope your wasn't as crazy as ours!!! I hate food shopping and even worst at the Thanksgiving crazy! hee hee

Our weekend was good. Nothing big really got done, like lights up, closet done, etc. But we had a good time together.

Little Cub had a great time at his academy weekend! He said it was really hard and a lot of work, but he enjoyed it! He was really sore when he got home and had to work all day Sunday, hee hee. They put out fires, ran hoses, ran in fire buildings, etc. It was cool he said.

While he was gone, Papabear and I did the dump run, brought stuff to good will, Did our Sam's Club run, ran small errands... got a lot done that way. Sunday was church, cleaning the house... I still have to do my laundry. I wasn't good like like Auntie Cyndie was. We are doing a "Friendsgiving" on Friday, so we got a turkey for that and dropped it off at their house... she'll cook it since we'll be gone all Thursday. When we got there they were working on putting their TV on their wall, so Papabear stayed to help... well I did to, but was just hanging out with the girls, hee hee. After they were done we all watched a Hallmark like Christmas movie together. Then we headed home since Little Cub would be home. It was a nice evening.

Again, didn't get anything done here, but helped friends, so that was nice! I also got homemade soup out of the deal for lunch today, so that was super good, hee hee.

Hope you all are having a good start to your week!!! I'm only working TWO DAYS this week, so I'm happy! So far all is going well. D just woke up, so will get him and I'm sure he'll stop crying. A and LMFP is doing well so far... today will be a good day!!!

TTFN ladies. I'll be back!!! emoticon emoticon

Cyndie, Truex wasn't too happy about losing to Logano either.

Great job on staying in your calorie range, I know I didn't. Oh well.

After Greg and I leave from visiting with dad, we're going to the grocery to finish getting stuff for us for Thanksgiving. I only have a couple more things to pick up and I'm ready. :)

HUGS!

Susi, the race day menu sounds awesome, as usual! I'm happy to hear that you had a great time at your Aunt and Uncle's! That was great news about you eating less than usual! Then there's the bad news of the race. I am shocked and disappointed!

Jimmy and I had a nice, quiet weekend. We went out for lunch (where I stayed within my calorie range). Then we went out for our usual hot date grocery shopping. Once we got home. it was time to do laundry.

Try to enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Well...that *^&^& Lagano got the championship. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Truex was holding him off then there was a caution, they all came in to get fresh tires and the bum beat Truex in the end. :(

On the good side of the day, we had a great time at my Aunt and Uncle's. As always too much food, and I am still full. The good news is I didn't eat as much as I usually do.:)

Cyndie, it may depend on the browser your mom uses. I've been having trouble with chrome lately with my email. I click on something then when I delete it, it all goes to my delete folder, all of it, and I have to go there to get it. It's maddening!

Today is the last race of the year and Greg will have to tape it. :( We're going at 3:30 to my Aunt and Uncles for a family early Thanksgiving dinner. Happens every year. :( He's okay with it though, he's use to it.

She always has turkey, ham, mashed taters, noodles, some kind of "wild meat" we never try, that my cousin brings every year, lots of desserts and home made apple sauce and stuffing. Too much food, oh and rolls and a veggie tray. Usually things like potato chips and little candies too. So that will be Greg's race day menu, just eating it earlier. :)

Greg was doing good last night, had a little wheezing though. I think it's his allergies mostly, it's that time of year. Even though he has been wearing a mask out there he takes it off when he sits to rest and I'm sure things are stirred up.

Good job on the good breakfast! :) Sorry to hear your friend won't be changing to your job, but I do understand her reason for it. :)

HUGS!

Susi, who knows what goes on with these computers?!? My mom and I e-mail every day, but all of a sudden my e-mails aren't going through (sad face). I'll check out her computer when I'm there. How is Greg doing? What's on the race day menu?

Missy, getting some of your Christmas shopping is great! I think it's awesome the way you dole your chocolates out! And then there's your gratitude list. As Susi said, I admire it, but admit, I won't do one (hanging my head in shame)

It was good to see my friend. We had the Simple and Fit breakfasts. Unfortunately, despite being unhappy where she is, she decided against my job. She has more vacation time where she is, and she isn't willing to give it up. Oh well, I tried.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

I swear I posted this morning. HMMMM? :(

Cyndie, I guess at least he had a mask on. He was out for over an hour today, but it wasn't quite as cold as yesterday. He did get all the leaves he blew against the fence yesterday bagged. He took frequent breaks too.

How did breakfast go this morning? Was she up for wanting the job?

Missy, I'm happy you got some shopping done, but so sorry they discontinued your favorite flavor. If you try you may find one you like just as well. :)

Thank you again for sharing your list. :) I should do that too, but I doubt I will. LOL!

Morning ladies!!!
I stopped in to post my 5% challenge, and just had to stop in to say HI to my favorite SP team!!!

Auntie Cyndie... I hope all goes well with your breakfast and your friend wants your job!!! If not, maybe knows of someone who would. Good luck, and enjoy your visit with her!!!

Susi... glad Greg is doing okay, and at least listen to wearing a mask!!! I know it must be hard for him to be indoors. It's to bad he didn't have something he could do in the house to keep him safe. Good luck!

Like Cyndie said, you both stay safe in this weather!!! emoticon

Last night we (Papabear & I) did some Christmas shopping. I also had a GOOD coupon for the Lindt Chocolates! I ask for them every Christmas and they last me ALL year. BUT Papabear went to go get the ones I like and they stopped making them (really sad face with tears). I WAS so bummed! So he told me and that is why I went to get them and pick my own flavors. But after this, I think I'm probably stop till they get my "coffee" flavor back.

But the coupon was 100 for $25. Which they are normally 75 pieces for $28. AND we had $5 off for being a loyal customer, so I got 100 pieces for $20. WooHoo!!! If I could make 75 last a year, I should be good with the 100, hee hee. I did let Papabear pick out some he wanted. He got 15 of his flavor.

Anywho, was nice being out with him and got some of my Cub's Christmas shopping done.

Okay, I forgot to post this the last few days... My Thankful list...

15th - I'm thankful to have the best hair dresser out there! (hee hee) She's family and we all love going to see her and just spending that time with her!!! Thank-you for always listening to us and for your advise!

16th - Thankful to have two cubs who are following their dreams!

17th - Even though I'm SO NOT a snow person [and I think I now have to retire my flip flops for shoes I can wear outside], I'm thankful that we got some for the ski places in our state and to put those smiles on the little children. I remember the days on waiting for that first snow fall to make my snowman! Enjoy it all you "Winter" people! (& be safe!)

Have a good weekend Ladies! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Missy, as usual, what a great photo! As for Younger Cub, I'm glad that he made it to the sleepover before the snow came. Speaking of snow, that's good news that you were able to sleep in today!

Susi, I'm glad that most things are still going well for Greg for the most part! He is a good guy, but I'm sorry to hear that he's so hard-headed! Both of you be careful in the cold!

I'm headed out to breakfast in the morning with my girlfriend. I'm eager to see is she's interested in my job or knows someone who is. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Missy, I'm glad you didn't get anymore snow than that, at least I hope it didn't start back up again.

Greg didn't have any pain this morning. I changed the little bandaid and cleaned the incision and it looks great. He'll go back to the doc's to get the stitches out. I wouldn't do it even if I was supposed to, it's too close to his eye.

He's been having some congestion troubles but he's doing okay. I made him do the nebulizer and that helps a lot. This weather is enough to give it to everyone. :( I've been getting short of breath but only when going in and or out of the warm to cold and back. I'm recovering quickly though. :)

After the streets cleared I went and got a paper so Greg wouldn't go out. He slept in and I was so glad I did that for him. Well, okay, just this once I will call him a jerk! I told him I preferred he didn't go out and it worked all morning. About 2, it drove him nuts and he promised he wouldn't be out long and would wear a mask. He was out about an hour but at least he had a mask on.

I'm so glad the kids got there before the snow! The sleep over was a necessary thing so I hope he comes back and says he enjoyed it anyway. :)

At least getting woke early was worth it for the delay. Hehe! I'm glad you could take that time to relax and enjoy the morning.

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Fall?!!?


The snow started at 8:30pm last night and around 8am turned to freezing rain. Looks like we got two inches of snow, so not bad. But heavy and wet!!! Stay safe everyone!!!

Susi... glad all went well for Greg and his second appointment! It reminds me of when Papabear has to get his cyst removed on the top of his head. Just had that a few weeks ago. Last week Little Cub cut the stitches out for him. Hoping Greg is not in pain this morning!

Glad you are staying home safe and sound!!! I hate the rain/freezing rain. Ice is awful and would rather more snow than ice! Stay safe! Will Greg stay indoors today?!!?

Auntie Cyndie... awesome! The retirement is already working for you... missing the meeting! I'm also very happy for you and Jimmy!!! That is right like Susi said, maybe more visits to your Mom and Dad?!? And not alone!!! Is Kim throwing you an big party, or taking you out to dinner to celebrate?!? So happy for you both!!

Hoping your drive home isn't too bad Cyndie. I know how people are in their first storms. Actually, it's been a pretty good morning around here. Just a couple off the roads, and no accidents with other cars! Hoping all is safe for you too!

Little Cub got to his academy last night. They left at 7pm and the snow started at 8:30pm, so that was good. He's only 20-25 minutes away. He wasn't looking forward to it, so hope he enjoys it!!! He didn't like the sleep over part.

Two hour delay for all the schools around here, so I got to sleep in. Of course I was awake at my normal time, and was woken up at 5:30am with the calls for the two hour delays, hee hee But I could rest and relax and got up a little before 8am. That was a nice way to start a Friday!

Hope you all have a good day! What are the plans for the weekend?

Missy, his 2nd appt went well too. He has a couple little stitches there that will come out in about a week. It was bothering him a little last night when the numb wore off, but he took a couple aspirin. :)

It was cold and rainy and so nice coming home to some hot soup! :)

We got the sleet and snow last night, not much snow, but it's slippery out, at least it looks like it. We're taking today off from dad. I didn't want the worry of driving across town. A friend in VA got 6 inches yesterday. I hope you didn't get as much as they were predicting.

Did the kids make it to the sleep over okay? I hope he texted and let you know so you wouldn't worry so much.

Cyndie, it has to feel great to not have to go to a boring meeting! :) And I'm really glad you won't have to be driving in the snow :)

Something else I thought of, you won't have to drive to your parents alone anymore either. :) I'm so loving this for you!!

HUGS!
