Cyndie, treating yourself to a manicure or nail painting or even a home spa is so much more fun when you just want to do it. :) I'm glad you had a do nothing day. :)

I cleaned and then goofed off a while. Started the taco meat then found the race was postponed. Oh well, it happens.

Rehab today. I am enjoying it and glad I'm making progress, but 3 days a week like that isn't easy when you have to be there at a certain time. I will do this! One of my days is on our anniversary, Greg said GO anyway. He doesn't want me to have to tack it on at the end. :) Besides we'll have the rest of the day to ourselves. :)

HUGS!

Susi, tacos sound like a good meal today. We both know that moderation is the key. I also agree with you that "banishing" certain food is a mistake.

Jimmy and I had a "do nothing" Sunday. I did do some laundry and my nails. I thought about how I used to do that to start the work week, now it's "just because"!

Enjoy the last of your weekend! Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Aw shucks! It was raining in Delaware this afternoon so the race will be on tomorrow at noon. I'll be in rehab. I offered to make the tacos when I got home, it's a long race, but Greg said he was hungry for them today, so we had them today.

HUGS!

Thankyou Cyndie. It was a rough day yesterday for almost all of us. Dawn had a woman there too, who did sign language for his mom and step dad, they are both deaf. I thought it was so wonderful that in her grief, she even thought of that. :)

It's good that you are trying to eat better. I agree you don't want to undo al the progress you're making. But there will be times when you just have to "have" something and don't beat yourself up for it when you do. :) Say it once and when it's out there let it go. :)

I'll confess ahead of time, Greg wants Tacos for the race today. LOL!

HUGS!

Susi, thank you for letting me know about Mark's services. I do agree with you about it being understandable about Dawn having a few drinks at the luncheon. I also think you were right to "sneak out". I am praying for healing for your family!

I don't blame you for needing a gallon of coffee to get started. I'm sure some it was because of what you were facing. (crying face)

Going to the gym is motivating me to eat better. I'm trying not to undo my hard work. Jimmy changed the oil in my car today. I walked while he was doing that, so I could get my steps in.

On a happier note, what's on the race day menu? Go, Truex!

Time to start the May thread!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Well, the worst is over, now comes the rough times for Dawn. :( She did good today, even had a few drinks at the luncheon. I was hoping she wouldn't but I certainly understood. The service was beautiful and sad at the same time. The Reverend did just enough, not to little and not too much. :) The military salute and taps, well, there was not a dry eye then. That is always very sad.

TJ did show up. Dawn said she gave her orders to keep her mouth shut and behave or she would be escorted out. Hehe! Kelly and Kyle came and brought Alec and of course they sat with TJ but Kelly didn't even bother walking a few rows down to speak to us, so be it. She and Kyle never came to the luncheon either, I feel bad for Dawn, but she probably doesn't care either way, they aren't that close.

My cousin Steve and his wife Liz and their kids sat with Greg and I. Aunt Pauline, his mom, didn't come. Liz messaged me earlier and said after the service TJ cornered Steve and said, I guess you don't like me anymore either, you couldn't even say hi. Steve said, I didn't see you, I was here for the funeral of a friend. GOOD JOB Steve! LOL! There again, it's all about her. GRR!

After the luncheon we decided to leave. Dawn was visiting tables and talking Mark with all his friends. We said our goodbyes and she said she didn't want us to leave. She put Trent on duty keeping us there. LOL! Well, when he got busy we snuck out. It may have not been the right thing to do, but we both felt she need that time to visit with Mark's friends. We're family and can see her any time.

I texted her and explained. She texted back a little while ago, that she loved us so very, very, very, very much. :) Now her healing must begin. I know it will take her a very long time, and we'll be there for her through it all.

Just wanted to let you know how today went...oh, and I'm VERY, VERY disappointed with Melissa, her sister. She didn't even bother going to the service! GRRR! Shame on her!

HUGS!

Cyndie, you are doing so good with the gym and eating :) I think I need about 5 gallons of coffee myself this morning I just can't get moving. :(

No one texted me if TJ was rotten last night yet, so I may have to assume she behaved.

Missy, thanks for telling me about Charlotte. I'm with you, I like seeing our soap opera actors working! Speaking of our soap opera, what did you think of Oscar's death?

Susi, I am so happy to hear about the progress you're making with rehab! I know that you'll let us know about TJ. I'm praying that all of Mark's services continue to go well!

Jimmy and I went to the gym today. Afterward, we went to Friday's for lunch. I had a salad with grilled chicken on it and fresh fruit. I didn't want to undo all of my hard work!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Missy, not only am I seeing the improvement but they are too. :) I upped my time by a minute on 2 machines today and will do the other one tomorrow. They said to do that at least once a week if not each time, they like us to be at 10 minutes for each. I can do that! Just maybe not right yet. :)

The kids were all doing some better today. The hardest day for them will be tomorrow I'm sure. :( Dawn said it was packed in there last night and probably will be again this evening. She hinted for Greg to take me home about 3:15 to rest. I was doing good, all she has to deal with and she worries about me. :(

I talked to Kelly this morning and she mentioned TJ was going tonight. I gave Trent the heads up and he said not to worry he has it covered. And besides that there will be a lot of police there so if she upsets anyone she will for sure be escorted out. :)

I sure don't get why some new parents have to do things the hard way. Geesh! I'm sorry you have to deal with that for the teething. :( It's not your job to do it that way.

I will be keeping my fingers crossed that the fundraiser goes well for YC! He sure picked a good way to do it. :) Yes, that would be really fun and interesting to watch. :)

The sofa table sounds really nice. You are such a decorator! That would be a good job for you. :) Of course some people cry at anything Hehe!

That was so sweet of you to get that shirt for your friend! I bet she just loved it. :) I hope they will do well.

Don't feel bad about my day. I still want to hear about yours and Cyndie's. Yes, I'm sad and my heart is breaking for Dawn but I know things will come down. We won't forget but people do move on eventually. :)

HUGS!

Auntie, I keep forgetting to tell you... on General Hospital, Valentin's daughter... forgot her name... was on the show "American House Wife" the last two shows. She plays a school friend of their daughter. Rich and snobby... plays it like she is on GH (hee hee). I saw someone else that same day from GH on another show, but can't remember. It'll come back to me at some point, hee hee.

Morning ladies... Happy Friday.

Susi... first, glad your appointments went well. Glad Greg is so good! Next will be you!!! Fingers crossed. Glad you are already seeing improvement!

As for the *itch. Hoping she doesn't mess anything up for Dawn, you, or anyone!!! Glad Dawn has you and others to help her through this! God Bless.

Praying the rain holds off and TJ stays clear!!

Reading about the services, it reminds me a lot of my BFF's daughter Ashley. There was SO many people for her also. I spent most of my day in awe and shock. So happy the people like first responders get all this for them. They deserve it!! Praying for them all! Next week is National Police week too...

Hang in there... come here to release if you need it! HUGS

I never made it to the taco thing. It was still raining and my head was pounding! D is teething REALLY bad and cried an hour straight! The Mom did not have Tylenol in the bag, so when I called her, she said she was doing expository meds... yes, I had to shove something up his bum! I hated it when I had to do it for Older Cub when he was two, and hated it even more doing it to someone who was NOT my child! JUST GET TYLENOL IN LIQUID FORM... or give it to him RIGHT Before you leave!!! GGGRRRRR! This should NOT be part of my job!

This morning she dropped him off and said there was more in the bag if he needs it again. Aaaahhhh... At least she is picking up close to 2:40pm today!!! Fingers crossed!

Today is Little Cub's fundraiser/his senior project. He is raising money for the local fire fighters. He's doing a soccer tournament and the winners will play some firefighters! It should be fun! Another reason why I wanted to stay home last night. We had to make baked good for the snack sale he's doing there. Hoping he raises a good amount! So far he has over $100, so at least it's something!

I did sneak out last night to get some printed paper for my project I'm doing. While at Hobby Lobby, I picked up a table I loved (sofa table). I thought if we stained the wood top, it would match out furniture and the dining room table Papabear will be making. It'll look great! He actually stained the top last night and is looking great!!!

LMFP is here today. Her nose is running like a faucet, and D... so far he's off and on fussy. Hoping for a good day. My BFF is stopping in too today. I got her a shirt a while back (about fallen officers) and I wanted her to have it before Police week. She is going down to Virginia Sunday for the week. She did that big bicycle race. This year someone else is biking for Ashley (her daughter), and my friend is part of his support team. It's a three day ride. I just wanted her to have the shirt for the week.

Shortly after her coming, I'll be going to help Little cub. Busy day, but should be a good day!

I'm typing about my day, and started feeling bad thinking of Susi's day... sorry!
On that, I'll shut up and wish you all a blessed day...

Cyndie, I hope she behaves too. Alec, my great nephew passed his basic training this time around and is allowed 4 days leave and should be here in time for the service tomorrow. I'm pretty sure that TJ will bring him, of course mostly to brag on him and get her grandma accolades.

Rehab for me today then home to shower and change and back to the funeral home. I'm hoping I can get through it this time without any problems. Tomorrow, I worry about, there will be even more people there.

We had a little storm last night but it only lasted for about 20 minutes. According to the weather page rain off and on for the next 10 days. :(

Missy, thank you for sharing the good news about your mother-in-law. I especially like the part about the true love! That has to be so encouraging to you and Papa Bear!

Susi, I appreciate you letting us know that your and Greg's appointments went well. I'm happy that Mark's services are going well so far. Hoping TJ can continue to behave!

I do agree with my Pine Valley sisters about the gym. As of next week, I'm planning to bow out on Wednesdays and go back to Bible study.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, our appts went very well. Doc was pleased with the little progress I've made so far. :) Greg's scan came back near perfect! :) Not even a tiny nodule in there. There is a sign though of a teeny bit of emphysema but he's been smoking cigars and pipe well before I even knew him. His breathing test made the doc happy too. :)

We came home early from the funeral home, soooooo many people there! Even police, fire and squad responders from other counties. :) But, with so many I started getting a little anxiety attack so it was time :(

I told Trent when we left that I was worried if TJ showed up that she would upset Dawn. He said don't worry, if she comes he will stick to Dawn like glue and if she makes her the tiniest upset about anything he will personally escort her out, and he will too! :) We will go back tomorrow.

Saturday we'll meet at the church and the police and his motorcycle club will be his escort to the church then they will do a military salute to him before going in the church. I just pray it doesn't rain then. The escort will go on rain or shine. :)

I almost had to giggle, sorta kinda wishing TJ would have come in at this one particular time...Max's sisters were there and they all hugged me. :) She would have melted into a black hole seeing that. LOL! Seriously though I didn't want to see her there. Oh, in case you forgot, Max is TJ's ex and she was so mean to him over the divorce and mad at me for even talking to him, hates the woman he married too. And after he passed away she still kept it up. Or Aunt Pauline, she's going tonight with Steve and Liz.

I'm glad your MIL's surgery went well. :) I will pray now for a quick recovery for her.

Hmm? Tacos in the rain...uh..no thank you. LOL!

I hope the kids continued to bless you with a good day today.

HUGS!

Morning ladies...

Susi... hoping your appointments go well. Nice you are going together! Good luck!
Yes, I'm sure this is a very hard time for you all. Wish I could say something to make it better, but I can't. Sending you lots of hugs!!!

Many people are different, but I'm like Susi, going every day to the gym would be TOO much for me. (Who am I?!! Hee hee... I can't even get there ONE day a week!) But when we were going, the 3 days a week, in a row, was nice! Maybe when... yes it WILL happen... the weather gets better, you can have some days in between going for nice walks outside. If not with Jimmy,than just you!

Auntie, what is something you wish you could do or try?!!? You just gotta find a hobby! hee hee Have you ever wanted to learn to dance, play an instrument, paint, read books, go for hikes?!? There are lots. I'm sure you'll find something. But for now, you are still enjoying just being home each day!!

My MIL did fine with her surgery. It was a nice visit and she was SO excited to not be in pain anymore (or won't be when she's healed). It was cute seeing my FIL and her... true love! hee hee Thanks for the prayers for her.

Tonight we are suppose to go to this Taco thing in the city, but it's out doors and it's raining. Not sure we want to go. I'm also exhausted! Just being home and working on projects would be nice... hee hee. We'll see.

B was okay. I'll leave it at that. Today he's actually doing better. So far a good day. A staying dry, LMFP happy, D not causing too much trouble, and B is playing a lone quietly. Good day.

Hoping the same for you all too! HUGS

Cyndie, I hope you both don't get burned out from going to the gym so much. It's great for a while, but it does get to you, so just listen to yourself and when you feel like you don't want to go, skip a day now and then. :) Trust me on this one. :)

Greg and I both have our pulmonary appts today, together. At 2 we go to the funeral home. It's going to be a hard few days now . And tomorrow it's rehab then the funeral home . I just hope Dawn can get through this. Hopefully her doc gave her a "calmative" to help.

Missy, I have never had a hobby. I guess it's because I'm not crafty. Jimmy has moved our gym days up to Monday through Friday. I guess he wants to get his money's worth. LOL

Susi, so far Jimmy has kept us busy going to the gym. There are certainly plenty of things around here for us to do. I just have to find the energy! Just thinking about it makes me tired!

We did go to the gym today. I haven't gotten to another class yet. I'm happy to hear that Missy's nephew avoided the shooting, but sad that this is a recurring problem.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

How did the knee replacement go today?

I sure hope B quit fussing today and calmed down. I still can't figure out how you put up with it like you do. :)

I'm so glad your nephew was away at the time of the shooting! Yes, praying for the others.

Morning ladies... Happy May!!!

Susi... that *itch is right!!! I know I keep saying to ignore her, but when she gets in your face, that makes it hard!!! Hee hee... maybe she said "sorry" to Greg because she is his SIL... haa haa!!! Deep breaths and move forward!! As Cyndie said, we are always here for you! HUGS

My MIL is going for her knee replacement surgery today! Praying all goes well!

Auntie Cyndie... Do you have a hobby? Do you like gardening? Crafts? Maybe trying something together could be fun! I say I'm the dreamer and Papabear is the one who makes my dreams come true! hee hee So I do some of my ideas, but lots falls on him. I'm VERY supportive, hee hee.

I'm actually working on two new projects right now. One for my MIL for Mother's Day, and the other to hold our keys near the door.

Is today a gym day? I forgot your schedule, sorry. If so, have fun!!! Any classes today?
Have a good day!

B is in another mood today. Looks like it'll be a day again. I just ignored him yesterday, but it is fussing off and on ALL day! With my headache right now, not enjoying it!!!

LMFP is playing nicely with me right now, so she helps to keep me smiling! D had a doctor's appointment and will be coming soon. It's gonna be a good day!!!

I guess that shooting at the college in NC was at my Nephew's school. He was out eating when it happened, so he is safe. So sad. Praying for the 2 killed and 4 injured!

Okay... happy thoughts!
Have a good day ladies.
HUGS to you Susi... hang in there...

Thank you Cyndie. :) And I know both are always here for me. I appreciate it so much! I'm here for both of you too. We are family! It's so much better than my supposed real one. :)

I think it would be fun for you and Jimmy to try a home project together. Maybe painting a room, or something like that to start. Okay, I don't suggest wall papering it's a bit rough at times. LOL!

Susi, I am so sorry to read about Mark. And as if that wasn't bad enough, you had to run into TJ. As always, your Pine Valley sisters are here for you!

Missy, awesome about you and Papa Bear getting your project materials! I don't blame you for being apprehensive about your cars!

Jimmy and I have never been the home improvement types. Now that we're retired, maybe we'll try something new!

Wishing everyone the best evening possible.

Hugs!

Thank you Missy. My heart is hurting so bad for her. :(

Missy, I did fruit finally today. I have diced apples, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries for a fruit salad. I put manwich in the crockpot so supper is ready.

Greg is outside working, we both needed to keep busy right now. Dawn and her 2 and Mark's 3 kids, and both sets of parents went to the funeral home to finish up what they need to do there.

Greg didn't do any models this past winter. I tried to get him to, but he just wasn't interested, he said he can't think of anymore of them to do he hasn't already done.

The Bi itch annoyed me again today. She sent me a text about life is short yada, yada, then a text about how much she loves me..Did I already say this? Anyway she never is but today she just had to be visiting with dad when we went.

I saw her and told dad we'd be back in a while. She said, and I don't believe this, that she's been there an hour and was going to leave. She had the effin gall to come over to me, touch my arm like she was going to hug me and she said no matter what I love you. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I pulled away from her and told her to stop annoying me and leave me alone. She looked at Greg and said I'm sorry then left. What the H was she saying that to him for???????????

Sorry but I needed to get that out. Thanks for listening.

I hope B was better for you today after a while.

Morning ladies! Waiting on the children, so have some quiet time... woohoo! I cleaned up the kitchen and cut my celery. I was going to cut up some fruit, but decided to visit with you ladies!

Susi... I do love how you and Greg work so good together with your projects. Papabear was so excited when he got the legs in last night. He's already looked up how to do it all. Just waiting on his wood guy to get back to him.

It's good you keep the projects for the Winter since Greg is so active outside in the rest of the months. Hey, did Greg do any of those little models this year? I don't think so, huh?!

I'm glad you feel your rehab is already working! That's great! Positive feeling go a long way!! It helps with your recovery! So if it has helped or not yet, I'm glad you feel it is!!!

Auntie Cyndie... Do you and Jimmy have any crafts, projects you both like to do... together or alone?!? I'm sure you didn't have much time for hobbies, but do you have one you can pick up (maybe again) that you enjoyed? Glad you are both enjoying the gym!

Everyone came in at the same time, so the house is full, and filled with crying! Can you guess who?!! B came in crying and stops for a minute and back to tears. She said they had a good week off, but then said Thursday he had a fever, got sick, and was doing much better now...aaaagggghhhhhh!!! So he's getting over being sick, and a week away, so it'll be a day. Guess I'm happy yesterday went well with potty training! Hoping by 10am, B will be better?!!?

Today will be a good day! hee hee

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

Cyndie, good job on getting to the gym again. :) My schedule is Mon, Wed and Fri too. :) I do already feel like it's helped some, but that could be wishful thinking on my part. It seems almost impossible that only 2 45 minute sessions have helped already.

Tomorrow after rehab there is a 1/2 hour "class" I have to go to. It should be interesting. I remember going to the ones when Greg was in rehab for his heart and they did teach us a lot about caring for them. :) They didn't mention anything about spouses or family going to ours though.

Another good thing about retirement is that if you want to do projects together like we both do, you and Jimmy can take your time and work it out. :) You could start small, that is if you're both interested in it. Takes away any boredom you may get. For Greg and I, the winter is the best time for thing like that. :)

Missy, sounds like you and Papabear are ready to start your projects. :) I bet the table will be beautiful! :) He's pretty handy with things like that like Greg is. :)

Ouch on the truck and car needing to go into the shop. Seems like everything always happens at the same time. :(

I'm so glad you had a dry day from A yesterday! That is awesome! :) Now his mom has to know it doesn't take running around naked to be potty trained! LOL!

HUGS!

Hello ladies...

Praying VERY hard for Mark and Dawn!!! HUGS, HUGS, & More HUGS!!!

Well it's done! We bought everything for the kitchen. Came out about $400 cheaper than we thought. I was happy with that! We also added and changed stuff, so to have it cheaper, that was great! I'm excited!

Also when I got home the legs I ordered for my dining room table came in, so Papabear can start it... hee hee. They look awesome!!! Exactly what I wanted!!!

On a sadder note, today the truck had to go into the repair shop for the muffler. Now that is fixed and next will be Papabear's car. Hoping that will be cheap... we'll see. I won't complain... at least I'm not going through what Dawn is...

Susi... sorry about TJ acting up. You are doing the right thing by just ignoring her! Keep staying strong!

Glad all went well for Greg and your rehab today!

Oh, yes, A did great on the potty today! I had him sit even after he went #1, just in case he had to go #2. It worked so he pooped twice in the potty! Dry day!

Auntie... good job on getting to the gym again! SO VERY PROUD of you both!!! Have you done any more classes?

Tonight we are suppose to get into the 30's. Hoping it's not too bad! I keep hoping the 60's and more are RIGHT around the corner!!! Fingers crossed!!!

Hope you all have a good night! HUGS
Prayers for Mark!!!

Linda, as always, it's good to see you on here! That was a beautiful prayer you posted for Mark and Dawn!

Missy, I think it's awesome that you and Papa Bear like those kinds of projects. Too bad Jimmy and I aren't like that (sad face).

Susi, I like the emoji you described, it's perfect for TJ! I'm happy to hear that Greg's appointment and your rehab went well!

Jimmy and I did make it to the gym today. It was only in the 40s. Like Missy said, I'm ready for the warm up!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Mark had more pain today but they finally got him comfortable. Drugs can only help so much. :)

TJ's back to annoying me now. GRRR ! She sent me a text this morning, a gif, about how life is short and love everyone and so on. Then another one that said no matter how much I do or what unkind things I say to her I'm still her sister and she loves me now matter what. Why can't she just leave me alone????? *angry red face with steam coming out of ears!* Had to do that they don't have a pix for it. :( I didn't bother responding to her at all.

Greg's appt went well this morning. He had his CT then did the walking and breathing test I did. He aced the walking and breathing test. :)

Rehab went well too. I did push myself a little harder today and got a little out of breath but recovered quickly. :) Wednesdays after rehab we have a "class" that they talk to us and teach us stuff that is helpful. It is about 1/2 hour so that's not bad. :) That will be every Wed.

You are going to have one very busy summer! It all sounds so wonderful though but I hope you take care of that back this time around. :) Hopefully Papabear will only try to do one thing at a time. :)

I'm glad YC enjoyed his ride along. I have heard over time that no two rescue houses are the same with their people. Some stick directly to the book and others use their wonderful people skills. I'm glad it went well for him. :)

How did A do today with the potty?

Amen Linda. And thank you so very much for that prayer, it was beautiful. :)

HUGS!

Good morning ladies!

Susi... so much...
First, Praying for Dawn and Mark. So very sad! I'm praying for the whole family!!! Nice prayer by the way! HUGS!

As for TJ, I feel you did the right thing. It was the last thing Dawn needed to deal with at this time! I'm PRAYING very hard that TJ does not mess up the funeral or wake! She is such a *itch!!! I can't believe your Aunt Pauline helped her. Sad!!!

Greg did okay with the shopping! Good for him!
Good luck today with his appointment, and for you at your rehab! Hoping they both go well!

Auntie Cyndie... Hope you had a good weekend. What was up with that "S" crap?!! NO NO NO!!! That should be done done done!!! I want to hear stories of walks, playing in the parks, seeing fountains! No "S" on the grass!!! NO! Good luck...

Well I'm back to work. It was a good week off, but sadly I started getting my bum in gear to do things at the end. I guess I needed just that lazy week.

The Home Depot visit turned into more, but it's okay. We went Saturday to see how much it would be to redo our kitchen?!!? Papabear is ready to jump... I'm still thinking, processing it, etc. We'll see.

Little cub was gone all weekend, so it was just Papabear and I. We went to MA and got some kitchen floor tile. Got some other things we needed and looks like this Summer is going to be crazy busy, but all good!

Sunday night Little Cub had another ride-a-long with the city ambulance service near us. He said it was good, but the people weren't as friendly as his first ride-a-long. But he still enjoyed doing it.

Well I have to feed the kidos. D is here crying in my ear, and is just being a pain in my bum! I forgot to ask her when he last ate. Also, the day after a week vacation... their schedule is usually all messed up. Oh, I also have to get A on the potty... hoping for a dry day today!!!

I'll be back. Have a good day ladies!

Cyndie, you are so very welcome!

Rough night and no news yet. He's pretty much out of it now and no pain at least.

I'm so glad your s was well behaved, but if it was even better behaved it would pass on showing up at all. :)

Truex lead a few laps but it was one of those races that just about everyone was good, then bad, then good then bad. It was crazy! 2 fairly bad crashes close to the end, but no one got hurt. Unfortunately Truex came in 20th. A good kid won the race and 2 rookies came in 2nd and 3rd, so it wasn't bad at all. :)

Greg has an appointment this morning for a baseline lung scan and I have my rehab at noon today.

HUGS!

Susi, I am sorry that you have to use your chaplain skills again. That's a beautiful prayer for Mark and Dawn! On the subject of death, thank you for mentioning my brother. With all that you have going on, that was above and beyond!

Greg did a good job at the grocery store. I may have to look for those new Bugles! When I was at the grocery store the other day, I heard a woman on her phone telling someone she couldn't send her hubby as he only buys snacks!

We had well-behaved S. It was on the grass when we got up this morning. I have seen enough of that to last me a few months!

Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Blessed Father, we humbly ask You to wrap your loving Arms around Dawn at this time and give her the strength she needs to get through this sad time. She knows it won't be long now till You call Your son Mark home and she's hurting so much, she will miss him and mourn deeply. Please bless Mark with a peaceful passing when his time is finished here, and bless all his family and close friends with the comfort of knowing what a wonderful man he is and that his job here is finished. In Jesus' Holy Name we pray. Amen.

Dawn talked to me today and said Mark doesn't have much time left now. It will be soon. She asked that only family visit and shut down visiting time so he could have his time with family only. All his kids,her kids and his parents, both sets are there with her as well as one of his sisters and 2 of his very best friends. My heart is crying for her. :(

HUGS!

Thank you Cyndie. It takes someone getting me REALLY mad to say that to them. And I mean REALLY mad! Then for a while last night I felt like maybe I was being too over protective of Dawn right now, but Greg assured me that she needed me to do that more now than ever.

She has always been able to hold her own with TJ but she shouldn't have to right now. I messaged Trent, he said He was more worried about her causing a to do at the funeral when it comes. She better not. I told him I was praying she didn't go. Well, just like I've always said, he said, oh she will, she will need to get that big appearance in. I'm not the only one who knows that about her.

Greg came home with his favorite frozen pizza for the race for today. Not that I don't like it but.. Oh well. LOL! He also got some new Nacho cheese Bugles and Nacho cheese Doritos. But to his good side, he also got fresh apples, red raspberries, blue berries and strawberries. :)

HUGS!

Susi, TJ deserves to be called out for her nasty, manipulative behavior! And I don't blame you for saying FU! That Greg is a keeper, not letting you go to the grocery store yet!

Missy, I hope that you had a good time at Home Depot today. I know you're eager for PB to build your table. What a talent!

We have that dirty S word in our forecast this evening! I am so ready to banish that word!

I'm eager to hear how Greg did at the grocery store, and what's on the race day menu. Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Do you know I have to stay out of TJ's business and mind my own? Shucks! Just what will I do for fun now???

Okay, I peeked at her FB page this morning and she mentioned a bunch of stuff from yesterday and said she visited with Mark, her SIL who has stage 4 cancer. Hmm? I messaged Dawn cause I was surprised she okayed her to visit. Well, she didn't. She used the sneaky way of taking Aunt Pauline over to visit, sat there glaring at his dad and step mom, and hugged Dawn when they left telling her life was too short and she loved her and misses being around them.

Dawn was so upset cause she didn't give her permission to put that on FB either. I told her I would deal with it for her, she didn't need TJ's crap on top of what she is dealing with. So I texted TJ and told her ... I hope you know you made a bad situation worse by manipulating your way in at Dawn's with Aunt Pauline....

You guess it, I got a call. LOL! I didn't say hello, I said WHAT?? She told me to mind my own business and stay out of hers and if Dawn didn't want her there she wouldn't have told her she loved her, yada, yada, yada! I called Dawn and she said she never said that to her and wouldn't. She said she called her too, but she didn't pick up. Okay instead of saying good bye, I was sooooooo bad, I said FU. Sorry, I usually never say that to anyone.

Thanks for listening. The rest of my day was good though, and I almost love having her so mad at me.

HUGS!

Morning ladies! I was feeling like Susi this morning. Woke up early (which was only 7am) and couldn't get back to sleep, so stayed up. hee hee

That's not the table Papabear made yet... just the picture of what he'll be making (wink). I definitely will show pics after! You know me...

Auntie Cyndie... Enjoy your weekend off! Thanks for being our inspiration and motivation to get going!!! I NEED it!

Susi... good girl still doing the bike and weights today! Good luck!
I'll get my exercising walking. Going to the BIG tile store in MA and then Ikea! We are also going to Home Depot, hee hee. Fun day!!! hee hee

Keep us posted on the race, like you always do! Good luck to Truex! Make it win number two!!!

Missy, I woke in the night anyway. :( It was my bad leg that was bothering me. I'm sure that will get better with time too, but as for today, I'm going back to bed in a little while! :)

I'm wondering if you and hint to your mom not to finish the letters. LOL! Although it would be very easy to do them all. :)

Cyndie, I didn't remember, but I will be praying for you and your family extra this weekend. I have so many in my family to try to remember that it's kind of hard to remember others. Sorry.

Hopefully Monday at rehab will be much better. :) I'm going to do my exercise bike today and some "practice" exercises with weights. They only gave me a ! lb yesterday because of it being my first day. I'll see how it goes with a 3 today. I have them up to 60, but I'm sure NOT ready for that!

Thank you for the inspiration! I need all I can get! :)

Greg is going to the grocery today, alone. :( I want to go but he tells me I shouldn't yet. Oh well. So it's hard to tell what he'll come home with for the race. LOL!

Missy, thank you so much for remembering the anniversary of my brother's passing! Hugs! On a happier note, I love your table. You can tell PB we think it's gorgeous!

Susi, you were right not to visit your dad today. I'm sorry to hear that rehab worked you out to the point of tears. Hopefully, you sleep well tonight! What's on the race day menu?

Here is your fitness inspiration of the day-Cyndie and Jimmy went to the gym today. Cyndie is looking forward to the weekend off! LOL

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Susi... good for you for all you did today! And no nap when you got home!! WooHoo! I'm sure you'll sleep good tonight!

Sounds like some good workouts though. That's good for your breathing, but also for your exercising! Win Win!

Hee hee... yes, caught on and fell off is how I go with the wagon too!

I think my map idea is not going to work... so looking for plan B! I'm bummed and annoyed, but I'll think of something. MOVING ON!

Thanks for starting the C's, but looks like my mom finished them again, hee hee. I just started the D's.

Have a headache so going to rest. I know it's my period. Crampy and the flow is picking up. Much better of course, but this stop and go is annoying!!!

Have a good night ladies.
Oh yeah... Auntie, thinking of your family this weekend with the anniversary of Skip's passing. HUGS!

Missy, it was really hard on the arm machine today. They had a tension on it and it only took less than 3 minutes before I had to stop and use my rescue inhaler. YIKES! I was so upset with myself to the point of tears. :( She talked me through it though and all was well after that.

I walked the tread mill, did another machine that you use your arms and legs both for but it wasn't exactly an exercise bike, then the treadmill. I'll do 3 machines each time I go, plus 2 walking laps after a warm up. After I'm finished I take 2 more cool down walking laps and stretches. We start with stretches and laps and end with them.

I was pooped by the time I got home from not doing those kinds of things for a while. But I didn't take a nap. I'm sure in need of one right now though. LOL! I can do this!!!!

Wow! $7 for a map?? That is ridiculous! I don't blame you for taking the pictures instead!
That table is really pretty! I think it would look good just about anywhere. :)

Whatever happened to just asking someone to be your prom date? No tricks or gimmicks or fancy shmancy stuff?

Congratulations on the loss! That is so awesome! I'm proud of you! :) I had to giggle at your statement about running behind the wagon. So mine would have to be I caught it, hung on with my one good hand flapping in the breeze and fell off again. LOL!

Your home projects sound like fun and keeping busy most of the summer. We will demand pictures! Hehe!

Oh, I hope you didn't mind me starting the C's. I noticed Linda finished out the B's. :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies...

Susi... my heart is breaking for them and I don't even know Mark. He is always in my prayers... Dawn and you guys too! HUGS!

Good luck with your full rehab today! Hoping all goes well!
Glad you were able to skip a day with your Dad. I think it helps him be in a better mood too for next time he sees you. Again, good luck today! You got this!!! (wink)

Auntie Cyndie... Good girl!!! Three days a week isn't hard or bad, and still I can't get my FAT *SS there! I will, promise! Reading how you are going, is helping me, so thank-you!!! (hugs) Have fun when you go... and great Jimmy goes too!

Yesterday was a fun, but wasted day I think. I met Papabear for lunch. Went to Barnes and Noble to see if they had a map of my town for a project I want to do. They sort of did (it was the city near us and some of my town). I didn't want to spend $7 for it, so I took pictures, hee hee. I think that will work for my project.

Later in the evening we went to Home Depot to get most of the stuff we need for our big project we are doing in the summer! Came out cheaper than I thought, so that was great!!! Already saving... hee hee. I think it's making Papabear more excited, which isn't good, hee hee.

Did I show you the table PapaBear is making me/us...

Just the table! It's gonna be the white bottom and wood top! Can't wait! We ordered the legs already, and he's working on the wood for the top now. It'll look good in my DINING ROOM! So fun to say that! hee hee

Also, did I show you Little Cub's prom proposal? I think they are stupid, but he went simple, and asked her on their one year dating anniversary, so it was sweet. Her favorite color is yellow... hummm, just like me, hee hee.


Their dating anniversary is on his birthday too.

Today is (my) weigh in day for my 5% challenge team I'm on. I was down three pounds! I'll take it! I have been trying to eat really good again! Especially since I'm too lazy to get to the gym. With the 3 pounds down and listening to Auntie going to the gym and reading all about that stupid Keto diet, I'm ready to get some serious losing going!!! I'm so not doing Keto, but will be better with my SP and get back on the wagon!!! (not that I even jumped off the wagon, but I was running behind it and not actually on it again, hee hee)

Okay, on that note... have to drop some paperwork off at my doctors so we can get PB's discount to getting physicals, and then the store for household needs, and back home to finish my project! Oh, I have to go to the store in the city near me to get material for making more curtains, If walls are coming down, the new windows have to match. And I'm gonna make new curtains for LC's room. That will soon be a new color too. Fun Fun Fun!!!

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

Thank you Cyndie. Reality sucks and that's why I play facebook games and other games on here to escape from reality for a while. It does help me some.

We're skipping visiting dad today, I told him the other day we might. I have my first full rehab at noon, and I don't really want to be stressed from him when I go.

I'm glad Jimmy is going with you to the gym! :) Greg was never interested in it. :( He says he gets enough exercise working in the yard.

Susi, I am so sorry to hear about Mark. That is so heartbreaking. It is a reality none of us want to face!

Missy, I hope that your shopping trip went well! You're right, it feels good to get the grocery shopping done!

Yes, Jimmy and I went to the gym together. He said we're going to go Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Sounds good to me!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Oh my, my heart was breaking for the kids before now it feels like it's shredded. :( Mark is so skinny, I swear he probably doesn't weigh 100 soaking wet. :( We did talk, about him and about other things too, and I know they were both happy to see us. We met his step mom and his dad was still upstairs. It was so hard not to cry in front of him. :( Dawn is broken. I know how I would feel too. :(

HUGS!

Morning ladies...
My week off is just me... little cub and papabear are still working. It's nice to have nothing important to do to be. I think I needed this rest!

Auntie Cyndie... good for you (two things I hate, hee hee) to the gym and food shopping! I'm glad you are enjoying the gym though! That is awesome, and helps!!! I was planning on going to the gym this week, but my laziness won over, ooopps! Next week?!!? Proud of YOU!!!

Susi... well hoping it's a good day for you and Greg. I agree with you... I try to put myself in that situation and think how I would like it to be. Praying it';s a nice visit for you all! I'm sure Dawn will be SO happy to see you!!

Heading out to the store for items we need today. Might just go walk Hobby Lobby too (hee hee). Maybe meet Papabear for lunch. Today is supposed to be beautiful, but Susi's rain is coming tomorrow! I was happy to get my budget down and it's looking great! Feeling good...

Have a good day ladies! emoticon

Missy, yes, it's supposed to go better after the last day of rehab. Hopefully anyway. I think it will be a long 12 weeks. Yep, Greg's appt is just a 6 month check up. :)

My advice to Greg was just using what I think I would want people to be like to me if I was in that situation.

It cooled down here last night. I had my yoga pants on for the test and even when I got home I put my sweats on. LOL! It's supposed to be 68 with rain again today. April showers. :)

Cyndie, did Jimmy go to the gym with you yesterday? I know you will love it!

Thank you both for the extra prayers for today. Mark needs to know that we care about him even if he is getting other company. Family is the best to know about. :)

HUGS!

Missy, it's great to see you on here! I figured you were busy on your vacation. I like your errand story. I'm with you. I've been known to do things I'm not crazy about, to spend time with people I am crazy about.

Susi, I'm happy that you were able to get through your rehab session. I'm sorry to hear that things with your dad didn't go well. We're praying that all goes with Greg's appointment and your visit with Mark goes well!

It was another good day here. The highlight was the gym and grocery shopping.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Good job Susi on making through day one! You got this (wink). Just wait till the end and you do that test again. I'm assuming it should go better?!!? Good luck!

Hoping all goes well with Greg tomorrow at his check up! Hope it's just routine?!?
As for seeing Mark, it will be hard, but your advice is right. Don't act like nothing is going on, but be normal. I'm sure that is all Mark wants are people acting like old times! So hard... sending prayers your way!

I had to change from my dress to pants... getting cool. Hoping, like Auntie Cyndie says, Spring is coming... and STAYING!!!

Have a good afternoon ladies!

I was lucky today and didn't have to do any exercises. :) I start that on Friday. Lots of gym equipment there for the rehab. They introduced me to some of the staff and went over all my paperwork and meds. That walking test though!

I had to walk for 6 minutes at a normal pace, about 1/2 way though I needed the oxygen on. I did have to sit for a few seconds too during that. :( Then before and after that I had to do some breathing tests, blowing hard into a tube, and trust me it's not easy even for a healthy person to do. I did it though, not the greatest, but not too bad either. I have to go through that again after rehab is finished. :(

Greg has a check up tomorrow afternoon so we'll probably go to Dawn and Mark's mid morning. He's worried about what to say. I told him to ask Mark how he's doing and just make normal conversation. It is hard to think of stuff though.

No rain yet, but it's supposed to start this evening, so you know where Greg is. LOL!

HUGS!

Susi... good luck today at your appointment! Since it was at 8am, though, you are probably already home... so hope it all went well?!!

Sorry your Dad was a stinker again. It's gonna be so hard, but I'm glad you have a way to escape without hurting his feelings. Praying you are okay though... I know it's a lot for you. HUGS!

Oh poor Dawn... I'm happy you are going to visit tomorrow. I can't say "hope it goes well", but you know what I mean. I'm sure Dawn will be SO happy to have you there!!! Praying!!!

My weather is just like yours Susi... 47 and high of 66 today. The sun is in and out, but nice.

I really didn't mind running her errands with her. It's just funny, I always end up having that happen with friends, when my sister lived around here. "Hey, lets get to getting" then... "Oh, I have to do this and that". I always went a long with it because it was time with the person. Again, I didn't mind, just found it funny.

Working on the budget, but just too a break to check in.
Hope you ladies have a good day! Susi, hope your appointment was good!!!

Cyndie, I hated hearing about the frost advisory. :( We're at 47 right now and supposed to get to 66 today. And the rain is coming in tonight and will probably hang around the next several days.

Dad thinks he knows the price of things, but I keep telling him everything has gone up since he's had to buy stuff himself. I know he keeps forgetting it. :(

He was a brat again yesterday. :( I know it's his way of life now and it's part of the process. I have times when I'm not sure I can deal with him like that again. I just make something up we have to go do early and leave. It's the only solution I can come up with right now. :)

Missy, Yikes on the cost to fix the mouth guard! :( I sure hope it stays fixed!

It was nice of you to take your friend on her errands, but gosh, like you didn't have something better you wanted to do. It was still sweet of you though.:)

I'm glad at least the other SILs helped clear, but it would have been even better had one of them done the dishes! We were always taught to take our own dishes to the sink and do whatever needed to be done I know you were too, but they are old enough they should also know better.

I talked to Dawn last night. She's trying so hard to stay strong for Mark. He's giving up and not eating much now. Greg and I will go and visit with them for a short time tomorrow.


I have my 1st time at pulmonary rehab at 8 this morning, wish me luck! I have to do a 6 minute walk test first then they will have the orientation. I guess I will be doing some exercises cause they told me to wear comfy shoes and clothes.

They will show me around and introduce me to the staff. I worried cause when I do my exercises at home I always have my oxygen on. She said not to worry, we all get our own cannulas and will have the oxygen. Whew!

HUGS!

Good evening ladies. Sorry I've been MIA today.

I went to the dentist this morning. My mouth guard broke... so stupid, I dropped it and it broke. Papabear and each cub have one, don't take as good as care of theirs as I do mine, and of course mine breaks! GGGRRR. My dentist tried to fix it, so hoping it stays!! Fingers crossed. After $200 it better!!! hee hee

Then I came home for lunch, but my friend called... she locked herself out of her house and had to wait for her husband to come home. So I went to pick her up and was supposed to come to my house, but I ended up running her errands. Oh well, at least I was out and about with a friend and her daughter.

Thank-you Susi about my dress. It was a good find at Kohls... can't remember the exact cost, but was around $20. It was perfect for Easter in my eyes, hee hee.

I'm glad you got that rest you must of needed!!! Funny how you think 4:20am is sleeping in, hee hee. Glad you got your rest!!

Thank-you ladies for the prayers for my Msgr. Hoping he's okay soon. I'm sure this has pushed up his surgery date. It's hard because we only have him and a retired priest helping and we have 4 masses during the weekend. We are one of the busiest parishes around here... or actually our state!

YES, my family was VERY happy to have Easter at my MIL's not my SIL's. I made sure I helped. We all (the SIL's) cleared the table, but I jumped in and washed the dishes and that one SIL dried. The other three sat. I guess it's good they helped clear.

Tomorrow night is dinner with my SIL. Oh speaking of my SIL, we had to switch Easter to my MIL's because my SIL got new carpets put in and I think she thought she would have her house all back together in time, but didn't. They are fixing up their house to sell it. Want it on the market by Summer time. So that is what happened I guess.

Glad we all are smart on this team... Keto is NOT good for you! Papabear and I looked up celebrities and their thoughts... that is what makes Papabear feel it's bad, weirdo. Dr. Oz was for it... very weird, and Jillian Michaels is like SP and us... NO NO NO! That was enough for Papabear to say no... hee hee. I knew as soon as I read the SP article.

Susi and Auntie, hope you both had a good day! I ran errands this morning too, so did part of my paying bills, but tomorrow hoping to do the rest of my budget. Then back to ME days! hee hee.

Okay, I'm babbling, sorry! Have a good night! HUGS

Susi, I'm happy to hear that you got some rest today. As we always say, it's important to listen to your body!

Since you handle you your dad's finances, I'm sure you're right about him not knowing how much anything costs.

It was an uneventful day here. We're under a frost advisory tonight. As I keep saying, I'm ready for Spring to come and stay!

Have a good and sleep tight!

Hugs!

Cyndie, I can't seem to get moving this morning. I fell asleep last night in the chair about 8 and Greg woke me to go to bed about 9:30, and I didn't wake up till 20 after 4 this morning . I must really have been tired.

I honestly don't think dad has any concept of how much things cost now. :(

Susi, I think you are right about your dad. He does still need to know when he hurts your feelings. Also, when it comes to money, you and Missy are right! We all have a limited amount of it, and need to spend it wisely!

Missy, thank you for sharing your Easter photos. They're beautiful! I'm happy for you that the Easter venue got changed. What supposedly happened with your SIL? As Susi said, I'll be praying for you monsignor!

I do agree with you ladies, the Keto doesn't sound like it's for me. I've never believed in diets that don't allow for healthy fruits and veggies! Jimmy and I did get to the gym today, so that was good!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Missy, I am praying for your MSGR. I feel so bad for him. :(

I'm happy for your sake the Easter venue was changed! I'm sure that made a huge difference in the get together! :) The pictures are so nice! I love that dress you have one! You look really beautiful in it! :)

I looked into the Keto diet a good while back and thought...Nope, nope, nope! I have a friend who is on it and she hasn't lost but a couple of pounds in the last 8 months, so what's the point anyway? I think it's just another one of those fads. Sparks has the right way and we have the right attitude! :)

Morning ladies... Happy Monday?!! This is my week like you two!!! hee hee

Started off sad, I was supposed to go to lunch with my two BFF's and one had to cancel. She has family coming in, unexpected, for a couple days due to a funeral in Boston. So their house is a good middle (they are coming from Canada). I understand, but was just looking forward to it I guess. Oh well...

We had a nice and Blessed Easter. I always LOVE serving at masses, but able to do the Easter one is like a blessing. Sadly our Msgr. who was going to say the mass, was having knee issues and in a lot of pain, so he couldn't. It was still nice. Praying for him!

After that was home with the cubs, hanging out for a few hours... taking pictures... baskets, and goofing off. It was nice. Then off to Grammie's house. It was supposed to be my SIL and it ended up she couldn't do it last minute, so was at Grammie's... God is good! Was very nice day.




Susi... so glad you had a nice day. I understand how you feel about the snacks. Remember when you said they were gone so quickly and I wondered if someone was taking them?! I could see your Dad offering it, and then they keep coming back. Hope I'm wrong, but...

As for the cost, I totally understand! I would get mad at the cubs for sharing their snacks with friends. Well, there is sharing and then EVERYDAY bring two, one for them and on for a friend. And we are in a town that MOST people have so much more money then us!!! You want to teach the cubs to be nice and share, but also how we only have so much and that was to last two weeks, not one!

It's so hard with your Dad too. Hoping you talking to him helped! Don't feel bad though, I'm sure you were nice! Sadly, he's probably forgotten about it, so don't worry! HUGS!

TJ... haaa haaa!!!

Auntie Cyndie... So glad to read Kim came over for Easter! I'm happy you all had a nice day together!!! What a blessing!

As for your gym, that's awesome! Love the classes and it'll keep it no boring! Hope you have fun! Always good to go to the gym and enjoy it!

Speaking of health, at Easter it seemed like all people talked about was weigh loss! My MIL has lost 19 lbs and is at her perfect weight! Her doctor said to lose NO more! Then my SIL and her husband have been doing a diet and he lost 33 lbs and her 19 lbs. This is the SIL my MIL wanted to make sure had a salad at Little Cub's party.

Anywho, I just thought they were watching what they ate. NOPE. They are doing that Keto diet. I remembered seeing an article on SP about how they are not fans of it (looked up the article this morning and read it). It sounded all good listening to my SIL till she started saying all the fruits and veggies I can't eat... Bananas, little strawberries, no hommus... those are three things I have each day to eat better, and now I can't! No carrots... another side Papabear and I have often!!

I knew right away this was NOT for me. They they talked how they get constipated. Definitely NOT something I want. Right now with my periods that is happening and I hate it! I like being normal!!! Anywho, if anything good came out of it, it was hearing how they lost 33 and 19 lbs! Made Papabear and I excited, again, to get back in the gym wagon and just be good and eliminate some foods, or very little. You can't have any pasta on Keto... that would be very hard for me... I have already eliminated it from every week, to 1 or two times a month. But none, ever?!!? No I'm good! I believe in not eliminating foods you like from your diet and learning moderation! Example, Ice cream! I have been VERY good. Had some at Little Cub's bday party, but before that... it's been a while!

So Papabear and I decided to head to the gym, eat better foods, and show the family weight loss can be done with out fad diets, and in a healthy way! Hey, my 70 something MIL did it and lost 19 pounds... I can do this too!

Okay, I'm done... sorry, hee hee emoticon emoticon

On that note, time to run errands for Older Cub and Papabear. Since my lunch was canceled, maybe I'll pick up a nice salad...

Oh, I forgot... on that Keto diet, you are supposed to have the heavy creams and salad dressings that aren't good for you. What?!!? Lots of what they said was total opposite of what SP teaches you. Nope, SP it is... hee hee

Have a good day ladies! emoticon

Cyndie, I'm glad you had a wonderful and uneventful Easter! :) I don't think I've ever known a holiday that there wasn't some kind of mess up or drama. LOL!

Yea, I'm still giggling about TJ. I wonder if she thinks I'm so dumb I wouldn't look at the date on the check? LOL! When it comes to her, I don't miss much! LOL!

This morning I feel just a tiny bad about saying something to dad. I try not to hide my feelings when something like that comes up though. There are still times he needs to know he hurt them.

Other than that we did have a wonderful day yesterday. :) Oh, but I have to clean house today.

Susi, our Easter was wonderful and blessed. I hope that yours was, too!

I don't blame you for being upset about your dad trying to give away his Easter goodies. I know his thought processes aren't quite right, but you're right, it's rude to give your gift away in front of you!

And then there's TJ, caught in a lie! What is the world coming to?!? LOL

Things here were nice and uneventful, just the way we like it!

Easter blessings!

Hugs!

I hope you had a wonderful and Blessed day! Ours was a bit crazy for a while. :(

We took dad that big bunny and I took some baggies to break it up for him. We also took about 8 mini candy bars and I took the wrappers off them for him and put them back in the baggie cause he has trouble getting them open.

The laundry lady came in to put clothes away and he offered her the WHOLE baggie of the mini candy bars!!!! GAAK! Of course she declined, but did take one. I was okay with that. But after she left I told him that was our Easter gift to HIM not everyone else and I didn't think it was very nice of him to try and give them all away especially right in front of us.

He did apologize but it still bothers me. Now I'm wondering if that's how most of his snacks are coming up missing. Those things get expensive after a while! I have to admit, I'm on the verge of getting a nanny cam and putting it in there! It's still bothering me but I will get over it.

Then there was TJ, but that's a funny one! LOL! She had said last weekend she had the check ready to go but it was laying on her desk at home and she'll mail it when she gets back from camp....She stopped by today and had one of her boys put it in our mail slot, it was dated the 17th! LOL! So caught in another web! She didn't even get it till this past Wednesday. LOL! She probably thinks I'm going to let it slide again, but NOPE! LOL!

Of course I ate too much and then I had the predictable nap. :)

Missy, I did forget to thank you for posting the photo of the cross yesterday. It is beautiful! As always, you must be so proud of your cubs! You and Papa Bear have done an awesome job!

Susi, our menu is similar to yours. We're having ham, green beans, rolls, and sweet potatoes. Like you, I hard-boiled eggs, because it just isn't Easter without deviled eggs! We are having fruit salad for dessert, Kim's request!

We had a good day, and are wishing you a blessed Easter!

Hugs!

I got the hard part of my prep work for tomorrow finished. :) Tomorrow is all easy stuff. :) I'm ready!

What's on your menu? Mine is ham, potato salad, deviled eggs for Greg, sweet taters, rolls, Razzleberry pie and cauliflower/broccoli mix with cheese.

I hope you had a good day today!

Missy, I'm so glad you made it to church pretty much on time! :) I saw the picture of the cross on FB and figured it was the one carried up, but didn't know YC did it! What an honor!! :) I love what he said about carrying it too! :)

Dawn didn't call me yesterday but that's okay. Mark's sister was there, and I totally understand. She knows me well enough to know I won't be offended if she can't or isn't ready to talk yet. :)

Cyndie, I should be okay with getting the rehab for free. :) I won't know for a fact till I go to my orientation though. I did get confirmation yesterday that my Anoro was accepted and they are processing it now! Wooohooo!

I'm so glad Kim will be with you for Easter! I know you and Jimmy love having here there. :)

I don't like the young whippersnappers! LOL! They make everything look so easy. Geesh! Yes, the push is good! You will love the gym and I'm glad they have classes too, that's the fun part! :)

Today I do my prep work for tomorrow. That way tomorrow is all the easy stuff and I can do that when we get home from visiting with dad. :)

Oh, I need to learn not to let Greg pick up the Easter candy. Geesh the stuff he brought back! Not so good for a diabetic or dad either. I told him to get dad a small chocolate bunny, and he comes home with a rather large one, not only one, but 2 so we could share one and a bunch of other candy too. GRRR!

HUGS!

Susi, I am so excited for you that you get to do the pulmonary rehab. What will be best is if you don't have to pay for it! And then, I am also excited to hear that your visit with your dad was mostly good!

Missy, as you know, I really love being on this board! We all teach each other things! I only had the one child to potty train, but I didn't let her run around naked. And speaking of my child, I'm looking forward to seeing her this weekend!

Our gym membership includes classes. Since there was a kickboxing class while I was there, I thought I'd check it out. For part of the time, I was the only person there, so it was 1 on 1. The "young whippersnapper" really pushed me, which is what I need!

Wishing everyone a blessed weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Susi... glad your day was okay with your dad.

Yes, D's mom picked up at 2:30pm, and LMFP's grandmother came at 10 of 3pm. So I was walking in as they were walking down the isle.

I was very happy to see Younger Cub hold the book at mass, and he also, alone, carried the cross down the isle and stopping as they read. Just so you know, this is a picture of the cross below... made up of 2x4's or something like that. It's HUGE and heavy! He loves carrying it alone and holding it high when stopped. One year he told me, "after what Jesus has done for us, I think I can be in pain while lifting the cross".


Heading back to church soon for the Stations of the Cross.
Hope you all have a blessed evening!

Missy, you are indeed very blessed! :)

There are no words to help, but the prayers are comforting and much appreciated. :) That's all anyone can do.

I hope they both picked up the kids on time so you could make it to church. I hope you weren't too late.

Dad was up and down today but that's okay, the up times were good. :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies. Hope you are having a Blessed Good Friday!

Auntie Cyndie, I had to look up "Maundy Thursday". I never heard it called that. Thank-you for teaching me (wink). Hope you had a blessed evening. I got to serve at our church, and I LOVE serving on these days! I get to on Easter Sunday too, so feeling VERY blessed!

Susi... my heart is breaking for you. I'm so sorry your family has to go through this. Praying so very much for you, Greg, Dawn, and MARK!! HUGS... not more I can say but I'm praying!!!

Auntie... glad you enjoyed your 1st gym visit! That was awesome... kick boxing?!! Did you like it? Hope so! I guess that is one thing just going to Planet Fitness... may be cheaper, but no classes. Love you have that appointment to teach you the machines! LOTS of people do them wrong and end up injuring themselves. Smart cookie you are!! Have fun!

I'm so happy I get to go to the Good Friday mass at 3pm. I'm very thankful to the two parents today! D's mom will come before three, and I think LMFP's grandmother will come at 3pm. So I might be a little late, but still get there. Thank-you God!

As for A's mother... there was NO way I was letting him run around naked! I didn't do that with my children, so not doing it with a child I watch! She's hoping on Spring Break she is able to get him totally trained! I also have them use the normal potty, and she used a little one, so that doesn't help. She said at home he just goes, most times, by himself. This is my 5th (??) child I have trained here at the day care (not counting mine own cubs)... we'll get there. At least he comes only two days, and then next year when he comes back full time, he should be trained!!!

I'm gonna do some extra praying today, for Good Friday. Susi, know I'm adding Mark and Dawn in there (you too).

Auntie, have a good day! Today is supposed to be in the 70's!!! I'm think my jeans will go to a skirt soon! hee hee.

Have a good day ladies! emoticon emoticon

Thank you Cyndie. :) I'm so glad you enjoyed the gym. I really miss the classes and fun at the Y but I don't think there's anyway I could do that again. Not in my condition anyway. At least when I start the pulmonary rehab I'll be getting some better exercise. :)

HUGS!
