Missy, I'm sorry to hear about your hairdresser. :( I hope she feels better soon. I'm glad your dental went well. Greg hates to floss too. LOL! I get him what he calls "harps" They are a kind of tooth pick at at the one end there is a bowed place with floss between it. It's easier for him to use than floss, maybe you should try something like that?

I think it sounds like PB is making tremendous progress on the floor. :) Have fun at the parties.

Did you get a walk in today? It's warm here but not humid. We all know where Greg was all day. I did dad's banking after my exercises. Congratulations on only gaining 1 after vacation. That's wonderful!

You can never bore us with your pictures! I love seeing them. :)

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Morning ladies!

My hair appointment got canceled this morning. Her tendinitis flared up. Hoping she is better soon... not only to reschedule, but mostly because I don't want her is pain!

Went for my dentist appointment yesterday and all is good! Like always, I need to floss more... hee hee... "more", you mean I HAVE to start! I always do great for the two weeks after my appointment, then I slack off. Oh well... try, try again!

Susi... good luck with your regular home rehab! Sounds like you have a good plan going! Keep it up! Proud of you!

Hope Greg has fun playing outside today, hee hee.

Our humidity broke, so we are in the 80's and feels like it. Beautiful day!! A day like walking! Guess who's going to try and go for a walk later...
emoticon

So PB didn't get as far as he hoped, but I think he did great! He has all the boards cut out and ready to weave them into the living room floor. Tonight is starting to lay them back down! Sunday we have our nephew's birthday parties, so he's hoping to have the stain down and, hopefully, the first coat of polly.

I got some fresh blueberries at the store yesterday and eating them right now... SO GOOD!!! Have to keep stopping typing to enjoy! hee hee
emoticon (no blueberry face icon, hee hee)

My weigh in day today for my 5% challenge team and I only gained 1 pound from vacation! WooHoo! I'm so happy! I was worried, but tried to eat right and we did a lot of walking and some swimming too. All worked out!
emoticon

Okay, well have to keep moving. When I sit for a while, my back starts hurting again. It's doing better, but sleeping and sitting for a bit hurts. So sick of it!!!

Hope you ladies have a good day!
Susi, I have to look and see what pictures I posted last. I'll post more soon... hoping not to bore you ladies too much, hee hee.

Have a good day Auntie Cyndie! emoticon

Missy, I'm so glad your parents made it to Florida safely. :) Now the fun begins for them! :)

I'm glad the floors were going well! I can't wait to see more pictures! Hehe!

Cyndie, that waiting till 65 is the pits! I have to buy my own insurance till then when I can get on medicare, that is if there still is medicare by then. It's always a worry! :(

Today is regular home rehab day. :) I've been keeping that part on Mon, Wed and Fri and just doing the bike and my walking on Tues and Thurs. On the weekends, I take Sat off and work hard and fast at my house cleaning on Sunday so I can count that as my exercise for the day. It's been working great so far. :)

HUGS!

Missy, that is such awesome news about Younger Cub! What a blessing! That sounds like quite the project Papa Bear is taking on. I hope that it is as easy as he expects!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that you still aren't feeling up to par. On a happier note, I'm glad that you're making progress with your at-home rehab! We always like to hear that Greg is taking care of himself!

My BFF is still working. She has to work until she turns 65 for the health insurance. I am happy that the sunburn is better. And thanks for the suggestions on the picnic table!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Heard from my parents this afternoon and they were in FL safely!

PB is upstairs making LOTS of noise! So far the floors are going well.

Yeah, I always say that about service people... if they can be in that heat... and all in their clothes, gear... then I guess they can handle it all! Thank-you Greg for your service! That's also to Jimmy too!

Okay, have to get back up and vacuum for PB. Just wanted to say good evening!

Missy, Greg can handle it somehow. He did live on Guam for a year in the service and said if you can handle that you can handle anything. :)

That was so sweet of your God Mother's SIL to fly to be with his sister. :) It is very hard to do that kind of thing. :( He has a wonderful heart. :)

I hope the floor goes well for PB. It sounds like anything but easy to me. LOL!

I'll be praying for a safe trip for your parents. I'm so glad they can travel and visit like they are doing!

HUGS!

Good morning ladies!
I forgot that today was Thursday! emoticon With starting my week on a Wednesday, I thought today was Tuesday, hee hee.

Susi, sorry your tummy has been giving you troubles. Maybe keep a journey to see what could be causing it?!? That's what I have done in the past. Found out about my dairy and then sauces that bother me. Good luck. Hope it stays better today!!!

I thought of Greg when I was in FL. When I went out, it was for short times! When we did our pictures, it was in the evening, but after an hour in it, I was melting!!! No pictures could of looked good of me with all the sweat! Not sure how Greg handles it!!!

Good girl with sticking with your exercises at home!!! Proud of you!! And moving up with the reps, that's great!!! You go girl!
emoticon

Sorry about your friend's parrot. Very said. My Godmother's SIL flew to CA, while we were there, because his sister was going to have to put her dog down. He didn't want her to do it alone. So sad... praying for your friend!!!

PB is doing the wood floors now. After removing the walls, it left the gap in the wood floors. The room we removed walls from, the floor did not line up, so he had to pull it all up and now will relay it all and weave it into the other floors. He says it'll be easy... hoping! He already had done that when we redid our hallway, so he knows what he's doing.

I took all the old and yucky wood floor boards out this morning and put it in a pile outside. Then I cleaned and vacuumed the floors, so they are ready for him to start tonight after work! Fingers crossed it all goes well!

My Mom (& dad) should be on their way, driving, to FL to see her BFF and stay with her for the week. Then they are going to my Mom's cousin's to stay and few weeks. Hope they have a safe trip and have fun!

I was thinking some ice lemonade or tea at the picnic table... maybe talking to Jimmy... or Kim..., playing cards, or reading a magazine. hee hee.

Well I have to get going ladies. I have to go to the grocery store, finish up my laundry, shower, pick up little cub, and then be ready for the dentist. Have a good day ladies. I'll be back.

Welcome home Missy! We missed you so much!

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful vacation! I think it sounds like so much fun and you all needed that! :) I can't wait to see some pictures. :)

My tummy is "off and on". I have no idea what's up with that, but I know it will get better. :) I'm still doing good on my home rehab workouts. :) Today I just have my walking and exercise bike. I upped my weight training to 2 sets this week.

Greg is doing great. :) Still finding things to do outside, but still drinking his water and taking breaks. :)

One of the women on my other team had to have her pet parrot put down. She had him for 22 years. He had a series of mini strokes and go so he couldn't walk, eat or relieve himself. We've all loved hearing about his antics and he has become a part of all of our families.

I hope the job PB is doing is an easy one with pulling up the tiles. He sure got right into that. :) I'm sure glad he didn't get caught up in the layoff! Thank You Father!

Congratulations to YC for getting another scholarship! That is so wonderful! Every bit helps. :)

And welcome home to your BIL! It would be so hard for a spouse to be gone that long. :(

Cyndie, nice having the picnic table. :) Maybe you can have some evenings out there for dinner. :) Or, maybe a starlit night with a glass of wine? Didn't know if you drink it or not, but thought I would throw that in there. Hehe! If not, maybe some sparkling water or cider. :)

Right this second my tummy is okay, but it seems to come and go. *sigh*

HUGS!

Hello ladies...

Thank-you Cyndie for the updated info. Hope the sunburn didn't take away from your having fun with you BFF?!! So happy you got a weekend with her!!! I forgot, does she still work? Hope the burn is better!

The picnic table sounds like a nice project for Jimmy! I'm sure some evenings here and there MAYBE (?!?!?? hee hee) you can have dinner on the table. We have done that with ours and it can be nice. Hope he has fun with it!

Speaking for projects, Papabear is right back to his! The grout in the kitchen has been sealed tonight. AND he is pulling up the dining room wood floors as I type! He has to relay them to weave them into the living room's floor. So far they are coming up very easy! He wasn't worried about this project. I just hope they go back in just as easy!

So last Monday, PB's company had a layoff. He was fine... thank God!... but his boss was let go. PB wasn't a fan of him, so no biggie loosing him. As PB says, he didn't really do anything, so really no lose. They are not replacing the 7 (I think it was) they let go, so that adds for work for PB. Today was his first day back, and it went well. He found out who he reports to now, and was happy with it. He said he's a boss he feels will help him and direct the team better.

Other news in the Bear House... Younger Cub got another Scholarship! Found out he won over vacation. It was for $500, so that will help! I guess the anonymous person who is doing it, wants to help whoever won the scholarship, so MIGHT donate the $500 each year! So that would be awesome and very helpful if they do!

Other news... My BIL came back home from over seas today after... almost a year over there! My sister (and family) was VERY happy!

That's about it... I do hope you all are well! Susi, hope you are feeling better!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that your tummy is bothering you. I hope that you're feeling better soon! As for Greg, as long as he is taking care of himself and taking water breaks, it's okay that he putters around outside!

Missy, welcome home! I'm happy that your vacation was so awesome! I know that you're trying to get caught up, so I'll tell you that I was at my BFF's lake place over the weekend. That's where I got the sunburn.

Jimmy bought a picnic table for the yard. I'm not an outdoor person, but I think sanding it and painting it will be a good project for him. LOL

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello ladies! Hope you all are doing well?!! I didn't have time yet to go back and read all the old messages, sorry. I'll try to later.

Susi... sorry your tummy isn't feeling well?!! Hope it got better! HUGS!
Seeing a little bit about your Dad and not in a good mood. Sorry he's having one of those times of feeling down. Know you can always vent to us!

Saw something about losing a pet?!!? Not sure who did... sorry for whoever it was. God bless them!

Auntie Cyndie... I use Noxema everyday!!! I have been since 6 - 7th grade!!! I like it and don't care what people think. I actually get compliments on my skin. But I also don't wear make up... never really did... so could be why to. Anywho, hope your sunburn is better!! Hope you were out having fun when it happened!!

Hope you are still enjoying the gym?! Kim is doing well?! And Jimmy too!!!

That also goes for Greg, Susi. Hope he's doing well. Saw about Truex winning a top 5 finish, so that's great! Keep it going!

Great job on your at home exercises too. I think I saw it was going well?!! Hope so!

We had a great vacation! Didn't do an awful lot, but enjoyed my Godmother and her husband's company! Everyday Papabear and the cubs went to play pickle ball with my Godmother's husband. They had fun. I hung out some days with her and her daughter. Her daughter did family photos for us. We went to the Kennedy Space Center. Cocoa Beach, and swam in their pool. It was all a great relaxing vacation!

Okay, well have to get back to laundry and stuff around here. Back in remodel mode too, hee hee. Just wanted to check in!

Hugs to you all... hope all is well! emoticon emoticon

My tummy is kind of bothering me this morning. :( I'll be doing my workout anyway! Greg will probably be outside. I have no idea what I'll do after that. LOL!

Susi, it's too bad that your dad can't see things your way, because we both know that you're really right. Maybe because he's a guy, he doesn't see it our way.

In a way, I guess losing a pet is like losing a family member. The best we can do is focus on the good times!

I'm happy to hear that you and Greg had a good day.

Thanks for cheering me up that I wasn't showing my age using Noxema. I know there's fancy after-sun stuff these days, but I just stuck with the tried and true!

Have a good evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Dad wasn't too bad today, but he talked again about wanting to "go". Then he said he felt like he was in jail because he can't go anywhere or do anything. *sigh* He does go to activities even if he says he doesn't.

I keep telling him to think of it as a hotel, maid service, someone else cooks for him and cleans his room and all that neat stuff. He can't seem to agree. Oh well, I tried.

Other than that it was a good day. Greg and I both had a nap and he's outside right now puttering.

Cyndie, nope, the Noxema is not showing your age. :) Now I'm thinking of their commercials. LOL!

I'm glad you both made it to the gym! :) Oh I do the lower half too, squats, walking and exercise bike. It's one that the handle bars move too so that does the upper and lower. :)

Yes, very hard to lose a pet. :( I still think of our sweet Benny all the time. It helps when we giggle about some of the things he would do. :)

Susi, I'm sorry to hear about your Spark sister's parrot. Having a pet for 22 years is really something! And then for him to be such a character to boot! We're all sad for her, since we all know how hard it is to lose a pet!

On a happier note, thanks for sharing the good news about Truex. A top 5 finish! WooHoo!

I'm happy to hear that you got your at-home rehab done. I know what you mean about a good kind of sore!

Jimmy and I did get to the gym today. I was the opposite of you, I worked on my legs.

I put some Noxema on my sunburn. Is that me showing my age? LOL

Wishing you a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

It was kind of a sad day for me. One of my spark sisters on my other team had to have her pet parrot put down. :( She had him for 22 years. He was silly with his antics and we all had come to consider him part of our family. He had a series of mini strokes and got to the point he couldn't stand, eat or relieve himself. It's sad.

I got my workout in and upped my strength training sets to 2. :) I hadn't done that yet so I thought it was time. Wow, my arms are sore. LOL! A good sore though. :) I had to have a little nap when I was finished. Hehe!

It's warm out today but not too warm for Greg. He's been out again most of the day puttering in the yard. He is still drinking his water and taking breaks though.:)

Cyndie, I've missed you but I'm so glad you had a wonderful time! I knew you would. :) I think it's so neat you were the first one she invited! :)

We did enjoy the tacos. :) Truex came in 3rd so that wasn't too bad. Most of the drivers were running short on gas and that slowed things down a bit. Several wrecks but no one got hurt, just mad. LOL!

Workout day for me, other than that, I have no idea what I'll get into. It's so nice to have you home! If you have any lotion with a mint base, that will help your sunburn. :)

Thanks, Susi! I'm sorry to hear that your dad was in a poo mood the other day. I'm also sorry to hear that
he wasn't able to pass his "test".

On a happier note, I like hearing about your at-home rehab. Keep up the good work!

My BFF and I had an awesome time! She bought a lake property. I was the first "company" I have a slight sunburn, but I think I'll be okay. LOL

I hope that you and Greg enjoyed your tacos. Go, Truex!

Dad was in his poo mood again yesterday. :( He's getting worse too. I did this thing I do now and then to "test" him and he couldn't remember Kelly and Kyle's names. :( He wasn't being silly either. *sigh* Usually he just gets her mixed up with TJ, but he didn't even do that this time. :(

I got my home rehab workout down yesterday. :) So far I'm staying on track, I just hope I can keep it up.

Susi, that is really something that TJ has been "good timing" all over social media, and then she couldn't make it to your dad's conference. I'm sure you didn't miss her. LOL So any news from the conference? What's on the race day menu? Go, Truex!

Speaking of "good timing" I'll be doing that tomorrow. My BFF has invited me to her new lake property for the weekend. I'm going to be her first guest. I'm definitely looking forward to it!

Enjoy your weekend! "See" you Sunday!

Hugs!

Cyndie, the conference went well, guess who didn't show up. :) Well, Kelly told us that TJ woke up and her shoulder and leg were really hurting and she could barely walk. What Kelly didn't know was that I was at her page yesterday morning.

She was at a place in the next town that has those water things that come up out of the ground and you play on them. She had a pix taken with some celebrity from Good Morning Columbus show.

What I was figuring is that she was showing off and fell and either lied to Kelly or told Kelly what to tell us at the conference. I think I was right. This morning she posted pictures of the Jimmy Buffet tribute that our town had at our yearly festival and it was last night. HMMM? If she could barely walk how come she went there with thousands of people and said she had a great time??? HMMM? again!

After we left the conference we went to the grocery and after we got stuff put away Yep! Greg was out in the yard pretty much the rest of the day. It was another really nice day out. :)

Good job on going to the gym! Yep, got my workout done. :) I didn't really feel like it but I did it anyway. I felt great afterwards. :)

HUGS!

Susi, we don't have many road stands around here, so that was a treat! How did the care conference for your dad go? How was Kelly, and especially TJ? I'm glad that Greg goes with you!

I'm sure that Greg was outside after you got done with the conference. It was a great weather day here. It's 77 degrees right now. Our big accomplishment was going to the gym. Did you get your "rehab" done?

Have a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie, I love the road stands! We have a large one that comes every year but we haven't been there yet this year. They have just about every veggie and fruit you might want. :) Your peaches sound so good! :)

This morning we have the care conference for dad and I'm not looking forward to being around Kelly and TJ. The good thing though is that Greg always goes with me cause he sees dad more than they do too. :)

After that we need to go to the grocery, on a Wednesday! :) Then home and Greg will more than likely work outside and I have my home "rehab" work out to do. :)

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Susi, thanks for the hugs and kisses to and from your dad! It's so nice that the two of you were able to watch some construction. Best of all, I like hearing about your at-home exercise program. Keep up the good work!

Missy, I appreciate you coming on to share the wonderful news about Younger Cub! His Pine Valley aunties are so proud of him! We know his Bear Family is proud of him, too!

I did forget to mention to you ladies that Jimmy and I did stop at a roadside fruit stand yesterday. We got some excellent peaches. I had one for breakfast this morning.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening.

Hugs!

I told dad hi from both of you and he said hi back and sent some hugs and kisses. :)

Cyndie, today has been so beautiful out! I took dad out on the screened in porch and we watched a huge crane putting down the concrete sub flooring on the new addition they are building. He really enjoyed that. :)

Greg got his filling and came over to visit. After that we stopped at the pharmacy to pick up a couple refills then home. Of course we all know where he went then. LOL!

I didn't quite make 45 min. on the exercise bike but I got 30 in so I am happy with that. :) I put some chicken in the crockpot with some butter, salt and pepper and we'll have that and mashed taters for supper.

HUGS!

Congratulations YC for being certified in both fields! We are so very proud of you and thank you for what you will be doing! :)

Missy, I will be sure and tell dad hi from you today. :) I did have a good day yesterday and now that I'm back on track I think most of my days will be good ones. :)

Cyndie, sorry you didn't find any gym clothes but I'm glad you went anyway to get out and about and get some steps in. :)

I'm not quite up to walking outside yet, but I sure hope I will be. Greg and I use to walk all the time. Once even clear across town and back to visit with my Aunt. It sure shocked her. Of course we were tired when we got home. We would walk to the fairgrounds at night to see the fireworks and all kinds of walking stuff. I miss it so much!

I'm glad Kim is happy with her promotion, but in all honesty, I think we would all be happier to get a bigger paycheck. Hehe!

HUGS!

Hello ladies...
Heading to bed, but just wanted to share some good news... Younger Cub passed his EMT test today!!! He said the test was VERY hard, but he did good enough to pass obviously. So proud of him! I knew you ladies would be too. He's now a Fire Fighter and EMT certified! On the right track!!! WooHoo! Things are looking up for my cub!
emoticon emoticon

Hope you all have a good day tomorrow. xoxo emoticon emoticon

Oh, Susi, say HI to your Dad for me, and Auntie... good job getting your steps in!!!

Missy, the kitchen looks awesome! I'm so excited for you that your FIL wants to finish up the electrical. As for the daycare, don't think about it yet, just stay in the moment!

Susi, thank you for my NASCAR report! I'm happy to hear that Truex is still in the top 10. And more good news that your humidity has broken and Greg can get back out!

Jimmy and I went to an outlet mall today. We were still looking for gym clothes. We didn't find any, but it was a nice day to get outside and get steps in!

Kim seems to be happy with her promotion, but let's be honest, she is mostly looking forward to that first paycheck which comes at the end of the month!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Susi... at least the humidity went away for Greg to be outside?!? It broke for us today too, and has been raining. Glad he had a good day. Hope you did too!

I'm very thankful to my FIL and that he wants to "putter" at my house. Any help is good right now in my eyes. The Day Care starting up again will come soon, sadly.

6th is good... better than at the end or damaged a car! Better luck next weekend! Go Truex!

Auntie Cyndie... hope you had a good day today too. Did you end up at the gym? How is it going for Kim and her new promotion? I know it was pretty much what she was doing, right?! Hoping all is going well.

I have to go back to cleaning, but wanted to pop in again. Have a good evening ladies!

Missy, I sooooo love the kitchen look! :) I can understand your excitement to clean!! I think it's nice of your FIL to finish up the electric stuff. :) I'm with MIL, let him. Hehe!

Yea, I think I forgot to mention Truex came in 6th, so at least he was in the top 10. There was a push at the finish so it was a good race. :)

It cooled off some today and Greg has been outside all day so far. He's loving it though. We did get a shower and he stopped then it stopped and he was back out. :)

I'm glad your parents are enjoying their new place. I'm happy you got to see it. :)

Enjoy~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :)

Good afternoon ladies!

Ran some errands this morning, now catching up on emails and stopping in for a HI! emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... glad the tree is gone and no damage to the fence! WooHoo! I'm sure you and Jimmy are happy that is all behind you!

Reading the paper on Sunday... my parents ALWAYS did that. Might still do, hee hee. My dad would play his records and we'd all stay in our jammies! fun times, hee hee. Glad you enjoyed your day relaxing!

Susi... sounds like you had a busy, but also relaxing weekend! Good for you! Nice to get the house work done and enjoy the clean house relaxing! Hope you enjoyed your nap, even with all the storms! We are getting that storm today and tomorrow!

Heard the race was good and with an exciting finish, but not sure why?!!? hee hee Hoping Greg enjoyed it. Sorry Truex didn't win. Did see he is second in points still! Go Truex!

The cabinets are up and in!!! Already for the counter people to come measure! It looks so good! I'm getting really excited, and nervous. Have to have it done before day care starts back up at the end of August. Next big project is pulling up the wood floors in the new dining room space and relaying them. If you remember, the wood floors did not match up when removing the wall. But PB says that's easy. Then it's trim work, waiting for counters, and fixing the littler things. Oh, and doing my little brick wall spot.

I can't wait to really clean!!! I hate doing housework, but this time, can't wait to! PB pulled up the paper we had on the floors to protect them, so after this... saying hi to you all... I'm going do a good cleaning on those!

My FIL will be coming by this week to finish up the little electric stuff left to do. We said he didn't have to, but my MIL said let him. He wants to help, this is a way he can, and he can do a couple hours each day if he wants, or not even come... but it keeps him busy, so she loves that. I'm very happy for his help!!!

My kitchen cabinets in. We still have more to do with them, but much closer and ready for counter people, which was important!


We skyped with my parents, so got to take a tour of their place! It's very nice! Spacious! My Mom did a good job decorating. Looks very cute! They seemed very happy and I'm happy for them!!!

Well I should get back to cleaning. I'll try to pop in later. Have a good day ladies!!!

Cyndie, that was nice of Jimmy to have water ready for the guys! :) I'm glad they were there early so they could do it at the cooler time of day even if it was still hot out, it got worse in the afternoon.

Knowing Greg he would have mowed out around the tree and just did that part when it was gone. LOL! I'm sure he'll be out today doing stuff again. It's supposed to be in the mid 80's, but we might or might not get rain. LOL!

Isn't it great to be able to relax and read the paper on a Sunday? That always gives me rest after cleaning. :)

Today I start my program. I can do this and keep it up! :)

Susi, you are right, it was very hot here yesterday. The tree guys were here at 7:55 am. I think they were trying to get a jump on the heat. Jimmy did stick some bottled water in the freezer for them. They were very appreciative!

I'm happy for you that you got your housework done. That's always such a good feeling! I'm looking forward to hearing about your at-home exercise program. You can do it!

Jimmy was able to cut the grass today, now that the tree is off the fence. It certainly looks a lot better! Meanwhile, I enjoyed the Sunday paper.

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Got my cleaning done this morning and took a nap. :) I kept getting severe thunderstorm warnings on my phone, we got a downpour for about 10 minutes with a couple of grumps of thunder and that was it, now the sun is out. LOL!

Greg has his belly full and is watching the race. :)

Cyndie, I'm so happy there wasn't any damage to the fence! That is wonderful news! :) I'm surprised they came on such a hot day to remove the tree, especially on a Saturday. They must have a lot of them to do around there and they are trying to catch up. That would be hot work. :(

Cleaning for me today then the race this afternoon. Tomorrow I start my home exercise program.

Susi, we are happy to hear that you gave yourself the day off. Also, thank you for sharing your graduation meal with us! I'm happy that Greg is behaving!

The guys came and removed the tree today. Good news, there's no damage to the fence!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! Go, Truex!

Missy, I'm glad you stopped in! :) I'm glad PB was better last night and you got it finished! That has to be a huge relief! :) I can't wait to see it with the cabinets in place! :)

I'm still considering Saturday my day off, so it's a jammie day for me. Hehe! I even took a little nap in the chair this morning. :)

Greg's being good and staying in. :) I know he's getting restless wanting to work outside, but I'm sure glad he's fighting it. Otherwise we may be fighting. LOL!

Cyndie, Greg decided on sloppy cheeseburgers for the race tomorrow. :)

Morning ladies!!! Came on to log in for my 5% challenge team & I couldn't NOT stop in here!!!

Papabear did get better last night. I went up and started to vacuum. We worked together and got it done! He grouted and I washed, and washed, and washed. We got to bed at 1am, but it looks good!

Susi... I'm really craving chocolate cake now, hee hee. Hope you are having a good start to your day! Hoping the race is good. We are looking for it to be in the high 90's Sunday. I know the heat index is up too for Sunday. Like you said, good luck to the drivers!! Go Truex!

Auntie Cyndie... That's nice you got to spend time with a friend. Then walked the mall. Good girl. Lastly... cherry on top... got your bracelet fixed and for free!!! What a good day!!! Hoping you have the same weekend, all good times and news!!!

Have a great day... I have to clean the floor one more time and then it's cabinet time!!! I'm excited!! Talk to you later ladies...

Missy, I'm so sorry to hear about a grumpy PB. :( I'm glad he at least apologizes. I'm sure he's just probably getting burnt out from all the work, but like you said, it was his idea and he has to deal with it. Golly, get in his face about it if you have to, I sure would with Greg. I hope today goes better. You're allowed to feel bad for you, I feel bad for you!

Thank you! I don't feel so much like an elephant this morning. LOL! Greg had a binge last night, don't know where he put it. LOL!

Thank you Cyndie. :) Yea, I think I earned that big meal, it was all good. I usually get their fish and onion rings but I have that here for supper tonight. Greg doesn't know yet what he wants for the race tomorrow.

I'm glad you enjoyed lunch with your girlfriend! :) That was a huge plus getting your bracelet fixed for free! :) I like those kind of deals. :)

Susi, congrats on your graduation! I'm sorry that Missanne wasn't able to come, but it's understandable. As for your celebratory meal and dessert, it sounds divine!

Missy, the kitchen looks awesome! I'm sorry to hear that Papa Bear is being a grump. I'm happy for both of you that the project is almost over! Remember, sweat is fat crying!

I had lunch at the mall with a girlfriend today. After we ate, I did walk through the mall. I got a bracelet repaired that I've had since high school. It was done on the spot at no charge, so I was happy!

As always, I'm looking forward to hearing the race day menu. Go, Truex! Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Hello ladies... sneaking for a quick hello. I think Papabear is getting grumpy. I understand why, but all I want to do is say YOU brought this all on yourself! It's hard with the time line of us having to have it done for the counter tops, but again...

I didn't say take EVERY piece of drywall down?!! I didn't say to redo the kitchen!!! I didn't say we have to redo the floors, or so on and so on! This is all him! I just hate the grump at me and when I offer to help, it's no. He always appolagizes after, but... ggggrrrr.

I asked all day, is there anything I can do. What he is doing now, I could of done!!! GGGRRR Last complaint, sorry, now he wants to just grout where the cabinets are going, and do the rest after. NO!! from what I read and videos I watched, it's better to do it all at the same time! I'm sorry, but I didn't come this far to half fast it! GGGRRR

Thank-you!!! Sorry!!

So we have the cabinets here, and now it's almost 9:30pm, and still haven't started grouting. But we ate, and he sat and watched TV, so again, I'm only feeling bad for me! Late night it'll be for sure.

Susi... sorry you felt like an elephant, but glad you enjoyed your celebration!! Congratulations again!!! So proud of you!

Hope you had a good day Auntie Cyndie.

Okay, better get back upstairs so the Papabear doesn't get grumpier! hee hee. Have a good evening ladies! HUGS!

Thank you Missy! I got my certificate and t-shirt and lots of hugs! :) No, Missanne didn't come in today and frankly I'm glad. It is HORRIBLE out there and she certainly shouldn't be out in this kind of weather except for an emergency. I know in my heart she was at home saying congratulations. :)

Greg doesn't yell at me, he sweetly asks me if I completed this or that, kind of as a reminder to do it. :) He's gentle with things like that. :) If he was a yeller I wouldn't even think of asking him. :)

I had a very good lunch! I had thin sliced turkey breast with mashed taters, of course gravy. Green beans, rolls and I had to have some mac & cheese on the side. Then the hot fudge cake!! YUMMY! I get the mini one though, usually I'm too full to get the regular size one. LOL! I told Greg I felt like a pregnant elephant. LOL! Sorry Sparks! Haha!

You and PB have taught your cubs well! They aren't even in the same league with most others, they are above that. :) I don't mean for that to sound rude, but they are really great young men as far as I'm concerned.

The floor looks fantastic! :) I can't wait now to see it with the cabinets in there. :) You have both done a wonderful job! :)

I do hope you are drinking plenty of water, especially since you were out mowing.

HUGS!

Hello ladies...

Susi... Congratulations on graduating your rehab!!! Can't wait to hear if your friend came back to see you off!! Hope so! I know you'll miss going, but so proud of your finishing it, and top of your class!!! Loved hearing about your blood sugar too. Glad Greg will keep you in line! If I asked Papabear to do that, I think I'd get mad at him. I need someone I wouldn't yell at, like you ladies, hee hee. Congrats Susi... enjoy your celebration cake too!
emoticon emoticon

More good news!!! Your Daddy playing kickball AND goes down more than what he says! I'm so glad. That means he really is enjoying his days there and has fun. I'm happy for him, and you!! Good boy Susi's Daddy! Keep having fun!

I think we all could go on and on about how children are these days! It makes it really hard at times when you are TRYING to teach your children to be better! But We do our best and feel our cubs are turning out pretty good, and they see what brats some children are, so they know the difference of right and wrong, good and bad! There is some hope in the children of tomorrow... hee hee.

Auntie Cyndie... Hoping you are having a good day! Did you say the tree guys were coming today, or next week... I think it was. Any plans this weekend? Get togethers with friends? Whatever you do, have a good one. Stay cool!
emoticon

The floor is done... well at least laid down! Looks very nice! He did a great job!
Tonight is grouting and getting our cabinets here from my FIL's garage. Then Saturday is installing them! Can't wait!!


The little yellow thinks will be gone tonight, but just wanted to show you a pic.

Okay, on that note I want to clean up. I got up this morning and mowed the lawns for Papabear! I did the front, side, and more than 1/2 of the back yard. Younger Cub will finish after work. It will be getting hotter, so I feel bad, but it's all his fault!

I was going to mow last evening, when it was in the 80's and cooler. He said no, that he'll do it at 7pm when he's done shopping with his girlfriend. Well guess who never came home till late! I was SO annoyed because I would of done it, now I had to get up early and do it. As I mowed it was already in the mid 80's and humid and that was at 9am!!! I was so sweaty! All I kept saying was "keep going, this is good exercise, and sweating is losing weight?!!? hee hee. I just had to give in on that last moment. I never ate breakfast either, so I was drained... NEED AC AND WATER!!! hee hee
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Okay, I guess I should go before I ramble on and on about stupid stuff. I'll check in later, but busy night! Have a good day ladies...

Missy, if the cabinets were never going to be moved again, I wouldn't worry about it. Bummer on having to wait so long to walk on it. :( I'm wondering if it's all that important, just a thought. I could understand 24 hours but they say for that long. Hmm?

Hopefully Sunday it will be better for the race. Only thing is no matter how it is, the drivers will be soooo much hotter. :( I feel sorry for them the most.

Dad was good again yesterday. We took him down to play kickball. :) It's just a blow up beach ball they set and kick back and forth. :) It's movement and exercise and he wanted to do it. :) Rochelle, the activity lady, said he comes down quite often for activities. I figured he did, but he tells us he never does. LOL! I need to stop worrying about that. :)

Cyndie, yes, it is very possible a lot of kids don't know the story. It's a shame because it could get them in serious trouble some day. :( But I also believe that kids should be allowed to be spanked still too. Not beaten but a good butt smacking. They have no discipline anymore. :(

Good for you going to the gym! Yes, I'm a good example of how hard it is to work out at home or the gym when you don't go for a while! Rehab has taught me a valuable lesson! Even my blood sugar has been perfect for a while now. :)

Today is my last day and Monday I start my home program! I will ask Greg to make me be accountable to him! :) And he will too! Hehe! Oh, and I get a rehab t-shirt for finishing the program. LOL!

HUGS!

Papabear is finishing the LAST bit of tile work! Maybe we can grout tonight?!!? We'll see. Just was reading you have to wait 48 to 72 hours before walking on sealed floors! I almost freaked!!! I figured PB read all about this already.... NOPE! GGGRRRR!

I'm trying to see if we have to seal the grout lines under the cabinets?!!? Some I read said to and some said it was fine. We'll see what tile places say (not on line). So bummed. I don't want to put out the counter top people. (sad face)

MOVING ON...

Susi... according to the local news, the weather has not stopped people from showing up. So I think we'll be good. Saturday is supposed to be hotter, so Sunday will be a "little" bit better... hee hee. Go Truex!

Thanks for the hug from your Daddy! Hoping he was in a good mood today?!?

OH MY GOODNESS... that dessert sounds so yummy! Enjoy a BIG bite for me, hee hee!!! Seriously though, proud of you and how well you did with this all! I'm happy, because that just makes YOU better too!

Speaking of being better... Auntie Cyndie... good for you going to the gym! I PROMISE... when this house reno is all done, I'm heading back to the gym! I have been pretty happy with my weight lately, so gets me excited to keep it going! I have been being careful, for the most part, with my food. So getting to the gym will be so much better too! Proud of you Auntie! You get me excited to go!! Thank-you!

I'll try to send you pics tomorrow of the floor. But for now, time to check where he's at. Has to be CLOSE!!! Have a good evening ladies.

Susi, I do agree with you about the kids. I am so old, I feel like there's so much they aren't being taught. Do they even know the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf? On a happier note, enjoy your well-earned rehab graduation lunch, especially desert. You earned it!

Missy. you have certainly been a HUGE help to Papa Bear on this project! I'm excited for you two all the years you'll get to enjoy your new kitchen. I'm sure you're looking forward to cooking again! Here's hoping your period isn't too bad!

Yes, we did have to go to the gym today. I enjoyed our time off, but on the other hand, I knew I needed to get back. We all know how easy it is to stay away!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, yep, I was going to mention the race was there, but I was waiting till tomorrow. LOL! I wonder if the heat will keep a lot of folks away.

I'll share my dessert with you and Cyndie tomorrow. :) I love their fudge cake. It's the fudge cake with vanilla ice cream in the center of 2 slabs, covered in hot fudge with whipped cream and a cherry. I just get the small one though so we each can have a taste. :)

I do hope you're being careful moving furniture by yourself like that. I don't want you to hurt your back! I hope PB was appreciative you did that for him.

I hope it goes well this evening!

Dad said HI back to you and sent you and Cyndie a hug and kiss. :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Thursday.

Auntie Cyndie... that's great about getting the check and having someone scheduled to come next week! Like Susi said, now praying the fence is okay!!!

Good job Jimmy! Always helpful when our guys can fix whatever is needed! Saves on money!!! Does that mean back to the gym?!! hee hee

Susi... I just realized yesterday the NASCAR race is in NH this weekend!!! I would LOVE Truex to win in my state!!! Go Truex!!! We used to have two races here, but they took one away, so this is it! Big deal for us all, hee hee.
emoticon emoticon

YES, LOTS of these children today could use a good back hand!! hee hee... that's all I'm saying!
emoticon emoticon

That's nice Greg is taking you out tomorrow! You deserve it!!! Enjoy! Have something yummy for me!! (wink)

Eating that late was hard and then going pretty much home and to bed. But we didn't eat all day, so we were hungry!

Papabear did not feel well last night, but was still able to get two and 1/2 rows done! He has a 1/2 day today, so will be home around noon. He keeps telling me not to worry... I can help with the grouting! Sounds like fun, hee hee

My period has really kicked in. The flow is better, and I'm not complaining, but the past few days the cramps have been bad! I'm used to it, but all I want to do is snuggle on my couch and relax. SO NOT HAPPENING, hee hee. No couch here, and no resting! It could be so much worst, so I'm happy it isn't!!

This morning a moved everything from the living room space into the dining room space. Last night Papabear said how he'll have to do that so Friday we have a place to put the cabinets. I moved everything, cleaned it up, and all he has to move is the stove. It wasn't on a dollie, and too heavy for me to move. I moved it as much as I could, but there is a break in the wood floor, so has to be picked up. Hoping he'll be happy! I guess that is what I do to help.
emoticon

Have to head to Wal-Mart... then be home for noon. I would love the floors done today! They should all be installed, he's so close... then we start grouting! Then sealing and Cabinets in!!! Can't wait!!!
emoticon

Have a good day ladies! I'll check in later... if I'm not too busy helping! TTFN...

Cyndie, I think that's a good rule. :) Here, at the beginning of the school year the grade schools give out whistles. The kids are supposed to have them with them at all times. If they are being threatened or a possible abduction they are to blow them. And every year we hear about 6 whistles going off almost all the time. Cry wolf. :( They just don't get it. :(

I'm glad Jimmy got the car finished. :) He's awesome to work on it like that. Greg hasn't done anything big on ours because of the electronic stuff in them now. :(

Awesome on getting the check! It didn't seem like it took too long to get there. I'll be praying it didn't damage your fence.

HUGS!

Susi, I'm not sure it has to do with not having kids. If you can believe it, my mom had a rule when Skip and I were little "no screaming" when we were playing. That way, if we did scream, she knew that something was wrong.

Missy, I'm happy for Papa Bear that you were able to go out to dinner last night. As the old Hershey's syrup commercial said, he earned it! And remember, all the helping you're doing is couple building. Tee Hee

Jimmy did get his car finished, he was doing the ball joints. We did get the check from the insurance company today. Jimmy called the tree service, they said they'll be out next week.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Poor PB. He's been working so hard and I'm sure he was hoping to get it finished and get away from it. It will be perfect though when he is. :) I'm glad you could get away to eat, not sure I could though at that time of the night.

You are helping him. :) Greg always says that it's as important to have the supplies and the extras like water and such as it is doing the work. :)

I do know one thing about kids for sure, had I acted like many of them do now days, I would have got the blistering of my life. One no to mom or dad we got backhanded. It sure didn't make me want to go and report them for abuse either.

I'm pooped! LOL! Oh, Greg told me today he would take me out Friday after rehab to dinner to celebrate. :) Frisch's was my pic. :) What a sweetie! :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Back from running some errands, so thought I'd pop in! Happy Wednesday! Wednesday means, praying day! Thanks to all who pray for our family & friends in need! God bless you all!

Auntie Cyndie... walking and talking is perfect! When I was dating Papabear, we could talk on the phone, but no more than 20 minutes... hee hee. But I would pace the kitchen floor. I say just the kitchen floor, because then we still used a cord! hee hee Glad she called and you had a nice talk!

Guess it was nice to have the break from the gym too! Hoping Jimmy got done what he wanted with his car!

Susi... I'm so glad the aids have been being better. Sadly you had to get mad, but I'm happy it worked! I would still bring it up to, but saying they listened after the so and so amount time, I'm sure the place would like to know. Good luck!

More hoping that your Daddy stays in this good mood also! I love that your visits have been better! I'm happy for you... and him!!

It's not just a "have no children" thing. I get SO annoyed with children these days! Last bunch was my nieces and nephew! I know it was their birthday party, but it was THREE of them and it sounded like 20... seriously!!! And then the behavior from the two sibling. My one Niece, the one I used to watch, would listen to Mom or Dad when they said no, but the other two... eeeekkk! Anywho, I have been getting annoyed with MANY children this summer and watch parents who just don't care, or watch their children. Crazy!

Papabear didn't get all the floor done, so he was bummed. But he got a lot done and it's coming a long. He got out of work and started working at 12:30pm and didn't stop till 9:10pm. We were eating dinner at 10pm! Crazy! His favorite rib dinner was on sale on Tuesdays, so we went to our place so he could have them. It was a nice treat after a long day!

I know he wanted it done, but it's very time consuming, so what he did was great!! Wish I could help him, but he always says no. So I do what I can... make lunches, get coffees, water, fans, etc. Yesterday I did some more returns, and turned around to get more things needed, but at least it was like a equal exchange, hee hee.

Anywho, today is finishing up the laundry, doing the rest of the budget, paying Older Cub's bill for him... hee hee... and getting some items we need at Wal-Mart.

Oh that note, back to getting it done. emoticon
Hoping you ladies have a wonderful day! We are supposed to be getting thunder storms and hitting in the 100's this weekend!!! Stay cool and safe!

Missy, our guys are getting more in common all the time. LOL! Greg, it was his own fault. He's taken to chewing bubble gum, why, I have no idea. A couple years ago it was suckers. I guess things like that happen to all of us from time to time. And those are the times he had some teeth problems.

I would love to tell Helen to use ear plugs, but she's quite the blamer and would more than likely tell me to mind my own business. LOL! Hey, there are times I have to use them at night with Greg's snoring. Then other times I just get up, sometimes they bother my ears.

I don't mind when kids are playing and just being noisy, but when they scream it drives me nuts. Usually first I think they are getting hurt or need help, then I just want to tell them to shut up. LOL! I guess that's what happens when you don't have kids. :)

Cyndie, I'm so glad your BFF called to talk for a while and you got out to walk and talk. :) Those are the best walks ever! :)

I do like reporting a good all around day, it makes me feel even happier. LOL! Dad has been good for several visits now and I sure hope it stays that way. On the 24th we have his care conference and I intend to bring up about the aides not keeping an eye on things. Of course since I complained the last time, I think they got told about it cause they have been since then. :)

HUGS!

Susi, I love that you're full of good news today! A good visit with your dad, and a good dental checkup for Greg! And best of all, a check from TJ! WooHoo!

Missy, your mom's birthday sounds perfect to me! And speaking of birthdays, I think it's interesting that your family has one week, and Papa Bear's the other.

Jimmy was working on his car, so we got to "take the day off" from the gym. As for me, my BFF called, so I went outside and took the call to get my steps in!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello ladies...
Just stopping in to say hello! emoticon

Working on my laundry and little things... trying to be around for PB if he needs help. But so far he's been good. To me, he's half way done the room... maybe one row more, hee hee. I think he's getting tired of it, but still going strong.

PB just went to the dentist and had a little one too! Guess it was the men's turn. But us ladies don't need anything!!! Glad it was little!

I remember you talking about that neighbor. We have little noises around us. Two houses down is a day care. It's nice to hear the children play sometimes, but when there's a screaming child, I'm good! hee hee.

I do love hearing the sprinklers on and everything else quiet. nice and relaxing! Maybe she needs to wear ear plugs, hee hee. My Dad used to do that when he worked 3rd shift.

Okay, well back to things. Want to log in my lunch and then pay bills... we'll see how into it I am, hee hee. I also have to write out some cards. July is a busy month for us with birthdays. And they all fall this week (my side) and next (PB's side)!

Have a good evening ladies! emoticon

Missy, we were already gone this morning before you posted so I will tell dad on Thurs for you. :) Greg was at his dental check up and dad was really good for me. :) We had a nice visit. Greg came when he was finished, it's right next door. :) and shucks, he has a tiny cavity he has to have fixed next Tues. Just a tiny one. :)

Yep, he's working outside today. I know at least one of our neighbors thinks he's nuts for all he does outside and she gets aggravated in the fall when he has the blower going so much. Especially out front cause it keeps her awake when she wants her afternoon nap.

The only thing I did today wasn't amazing but I got a great nap in. Had a broken up sleep night so I needed that. :)

I hope Papabear could get the floor finished today. Yes, it is an amazing feeling when you do things yourself, something to take pride in! I'm proud of both of you for tackling this job!!

It sounds like your mom had the perfect birthday to me! :) I'm glad she enjoyed it. I sent her a goody on her birthday, so she'll probably see that when she comes online.

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Morning ladies! Happy Tuesday?!?

Susi... I was trying to figure out last night why a pig flew over my house... now I know. emoticon emoticon Happy she is sending some money. Long over due, but at least she is finally paying! I'm happy for you!!

Say HI to your dad for me today! Hoping he is having a wonderful day and you have a nice visit!!!
emoticon

How's Greg doing? Yard work I'm sure today... hee hee. I don't know how he does it, but then I guess if it's something you enjoy, you can. No worst then what people might think of me crafting or my photo books. Hope he has a good day too, today!

And last, but definitely not least... Susi... Hoping you have an amazing day doing whatever you want, and relaxing!!!
emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... I agree with you also about waiting till the check is in hand! You never know, so better to be safe than sorry! Hoping it comes soon!

Heading to the gym still? Any new classes, or you just do weights and machines? Hope you have a good workout, if you go, today. If not... have a wonderful day whatever you do!
emoticon emoticon

Papabear took a 1/2 day, so hoping to finish the tile work today. I went to the store this morning to get more mortar. He's 1/2 way done, in my eyes, and it's looking awesome! I feel so proud we are doing this project, but he has to feel amazing with all HE has done!!! When people come a see it and are amazed, it will be an even better feeling knowing HE did it!!

Today is my Nephew/Godson's birthday! And tomorrow is my Niece's birthday (brother & sister). I miss them, he's in NC and she is in GA.

Sounds like my Mommy had a good day yesterday for her birthday. My dad went out and got her a pizza I guess, and they watched shows she enjoys. Simple, but together. That's how I like it too.

Okay, well want to clean up some stuff and get PB's area ready so he can start as soon as he gets home! I'll check in later. Hoping you all have a good day!

Thank you both! :)

Missy, Hehe! Yep, I did misunderstand~ so Happy 10 year FB anniversary friend! :)

It won't be long till your renovations are finished. Of course it may seem like it, but it's coming along so nicely. :)

Cyndie, I sure don't blame you for wanting the check before you call for the tree removal. I would be the same way.

Speaking of checks, I got another one from TJ yesterday without the reminder, this one was for $50. :) I think she could have been doing that all along she just didn't want to.

HUGS!

Missy, what a lot of drama about the wet saw. I'm happy that all ended up well in the end! I can see that lots of hard work is being done!

Susi, congrats on rehab! WooHoo! We knew you could do it! And now that you and Missy have told me about Newman's, I have to get one!

I am so untrusting, I want to have the check from the insurance company in hand before I call for the tree removal. I hope it all works out!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Ooops, just read what I wrote below about the anniversary in this morning's post. I worded it wrong. I was trying to say, when I was on FB this morning to wish my Mom a happy birthday, I saw it was Susi and I's FB anniversary.

Sorry for the mess up! emoticon
