  Here to try it again.  I can no longer remember what things I have said and not said because so many of my posts have been lost.  I am trying to use just the mouse pad on my laptap to see if the issue is with my wireless mouse.  Actually I use a Synaptics Touch Pad and I am beginning to think it may be the problem.  We will see.
Dorothy, I hate seeing things done in a disorganized manner.  It drives me crazy.  I am surprised that you can keep yourself from saying anything.  Not sure if I could.  Like you are discovering, going with the flow is certainly easier and perhaps less stressful, though I am not totally sold on that.  But I know I need to be less controlling.  Ha!  Easier said than done.
I really would love to watch some older scarier movies but mom would never go for it.  Perhaps I will start going into my room and watching them on my laptop or iPad.  I can get Amazon Prime on it and did watch a movie on it in my room once.  I did not even mind the little screen.
I just got done saving this and went to open it and it was gone.  I almost exploded but then thought....calm down and think clearly. So then I thought, maybe it is on the next page and so I look and voila! we now have page three so no lost post yet, lol.
Jordan was coming to shampoo the carpet today but we called it off.  It is a damp and cloudy day and out living room is very dark, even with lights on.  It is just too hard to see the carpet stains, etc.  So we are going to try again on Thursday.  Last night it did not work either as I got to late and dark...so really hoping for a sunny day on Thur.  Tomorrow the ladies are coming and we will celebrate my birthday one last time.  I want to do A&W before they close for the season and I want a double bacon cheeseburger, rings, cheese curds and slushee.  Mom and I will split the cheese curds and rings.  I can hardly wait, lol.
Have a great Hump day tomorrow.
Hugs,

I'm back 
I forgot to say that my INR was once again at the very top of my range 2.93, as it was last month.  So we are lowering my dosage ever so slightly to bring it down a little bit.  LOL, and the pharmacist says we will recheck again in 3 weeks like last time.  That cracked my up because it was 4 weeks even though it was supposed to be 3.  But next time I am going to the Anticoagulation Clinic for the test.  This way I should not have to go in to the clinic until March so that is cool.
Now the biggest news.....I unplugged my Synaptic tablet and am just using the touch pad on my laptop and everything is working just fine so my synaptic is shot.  I will check on line to see if there is any fix for it because I love it and if there is not, I may splurge to by another.  So glad I did not call my computer guy and look like a fool, lol.
Ok, bye, bye.
Hugs,

Good Morning.
Brrrrrrrr.  It got below freezing last night and we did have a skiff of snow in the afternoon, but only a skiff.   Had a nice, lazy day yesterday but we did fix the crock pot steaks with just a little bit of tweaking, and they were good.  I modified the recipe in our cookbook and I can recommend it.  Makes a fair bit of gravy, too.  

This morning I'm coloring my hair ~ way overdo!   

I would like to tell those of you who think that Mike is a good guy that he is not.  He is EVIL.   He ordered something for me for Halloween, and while he was online looking at and ordering it, he couldn't stop laughing.  It arrived last night, and he's been chuckling ever since.  I don't know whether to be afraid or annoyed or what, but if he doesn't stop chuckling to himself, I'm gonna smack him! 

smiley1

Lou Ann, I love your border ~ so I stole your border.  Not just this one, either.  

Hooray!  Your INR was within range AND you discovered what was causing all of your cursor problems.  I am going to have to check on the Synaptic pad because I'm not familiar with it.  I use a wireless roller ball mouse and I really like it.  It can remain stationary by my side and I manipulate the mouse with my thumb.  I had problems disconnecting the mouse pad at first, but once I got it completely disconnected I haven't had any problems.  

I didn't think I would enjoy watching movies on my laptop, but I've found that when I miss my Soap and haven't taped it, I can watch it without commercials online and I love it.   Most of the time Mike and I want to watch the same movies or shows in the evenings, so I wouldn't enjoy watching something on my own.  It's more fun to share with him ~ but if there were something he didn't want to see (like my Soap ~ lol), I'd be fine with watching it on my Laptop.  We go our separate ways in the afternoons to watch different things on our respective TVs anyway.  Too much togetherness is . . . too much.  lol

Have fun with the ladies tonight!

Good Morning.

It's 37 degrees, heading for a high of 47.  Snow expected overnight ~ positively brrrrr worthy.    We're going to The Hideaway for 'dinner' tonight, well sort of.  We are going to the lounge rather than the dinning room for the lounge menu. Much less expensive, but it looks good.  We'll see.   

Our neighbor Barbara popped over yesterday afternoon with a coffee cake and a desire to visit. We hadn't really talked to her since she got back from Haiti.   She's leaving again on Saturday for three weeks, but this time only to attend a conference and visit with friends and family along the way.  Then she's considering a month long mission in India before her next several month long mission to Kenya in March.   It just exhausts me just thinking of it all.  

While she was here we got a delivery and she bounded down the hall to get it for us, commenting as she brought it in "Oh, something from Godiva".  Thanks a lot, Barb.  I know your intentions were good, but any hope of a little surprise for Mike for Halloween was blown.  smiley69     Stuff came in a huge box, which she brought into the Man Cave so he saw it, so he's likely to be very disappointed at the small things that were actually inside.   Ah, well.  

smiley2

Have a Terrific Thursday, all!

Hello ladies

Dorothy, Mike is truly evil. LOL. but I love it!!  Sweet torment, sweet torture!
Hee hee.  The perfect Halloween trick that may not be a treat, ha ha ha!  What a smart man Mike is.
I had a lovely time with my friends, as always we laughed a lot.  We got A&W for supper and had a marble cake for dessert.  I got some lovely gifts, pencils, pens, notepads, earrings, a gift card, a spider Halloween sign and some candy corn with dry roasted peanuts in a homemade mummy jar.  It was very nice and the ladies did not leave until late.  The only bad part was that I really was not feeling well and I got quite uncomfortable while they were hear.  Mom tried to hurry them along once it was going on 11 by saying to one that she knew I really was not feeling well.  I took TUMS which they knew.  But is was ok, and I did start feeling better before they left.  Now today was another story.  I got up not feeling well and it was not a good day for that.  Jordan was coming to shampoo the carpet and we had to get the small stuff out of the room.  When he came he brought 2 young men with him who helped him move the furniture and do the floor.  So I was sitting in my
chair in the dining room.  No TV where I was, but was fooling around on my 
iPad and found I could download apps for the different TV networks so I
looked up which network Criminal Minds was on and added that app.  CBS.  I 
then watched Criminal Minds without torturing my mother, lol.  Played a little on my laptop too as I was using it on battery.  Around 7 Jordan came back and had another young man with him who helped him to move all the furniture back into place.  So far the carpet looks good.  Tomorrow we will see in the light of day and with a dry carpet how it looks.  When I get done here I am going to bed.  I just am not up to par.  I did nap a little bit a couple times today but I still feel really tired...Hope I am not coming down with something.  It makes me happy that you are snagging my borders.  I need to move the newest ones into my saved ones.  I still have not asked Suz about the Autumn drive.  Looks like Sunday is supposed to be sunny so I want to go then.  We thought she was coming over tonight to help Jordan but he brought a friend instead, so I need to talk with her.
Off to bed I go.
Hugs,

Good Morning My Lovlies.   It's a cold one here today, and we got maybe 2 inches of snow!  Not sticking to the pavement, which is nice, but everything is covered. Nice day to stay inside and curl up in front of the fire, don't you think?   

When Marcela was here and cleaning our shower, she took all the bottles off of the shower shelves and put them in the window so she could clean the shelves, then left the shower door open for a few minutes.  When she returned, this is what she saw!  That window is above my head, btw.   She took pictures with her cell phone, and sent them to me, so I'm sharing one with you.  That's my boy.  lol



As long as I'm sharing pictures, here's one of the Fall wreath now on the front door courtesy of the Command Hook.  Hooray for Command Hooks!  Colors are a bit hinky in the picture, but you can get the idea.


Lou Ann, I'm so glad your Birthday Party was fun, and that you got so many nice things!  I'm sorry you weren't feeling good, but glad you could hang in there and enjoy them all.

And now, nice clean carpets, too.  Send those boys my way!  We need the carpets cleaned!   

I have A&E and NBC Apps on my Laptop and on the occasions that I have missed Days of our lives and not taped it, I've watched it here and without commercials!   I've watched a few other things, too.  Great to be able to do it.    

I've used some of your borders in the other group, and I see they have been "appropriated" by others in the group to use, too!  Obviously I'm not the only one who likes them! 

I hope you wake up feeling all better.

Have a Freaky Friday All.

Hello Cuppa's
Tonight was supposed to be an eclipse of the moon and as I have seen a lot of pictures of a beautiful full moon.  But nothing that looks like an eclipse....other than a bit of a glow around the moon.  Is that it?  LOL
Dorothy, I feel better today...not great but better.  But it has been a bit of a scary day.  Once again I was working on moms check book and enlisted her help as we went over everything again and we are still off $62.  Thankfully, they say she has more than her check book has.  I have given up.  I went on line and took her current balance and subtracted any checks that are still outstanding on line and put that balance into her checkbook.  I told her next month just give it to me to balance as she does not quite get what I have done and I do not want her messing it up, lol.  I do not want to be spending hours on it every month.  I still have not done my own, lol.  I had better.
Just after I explained to her what I was doing she looked at me and said "Everything is spinning", I was looking at her and I said nothing and she said "Lou Ann, everything is spinning, I feel like I am going to fall out of the chair.  Call an ambulance."   I told her to calm down as vertigo can be caused by a lot of things, try to relax.  She then said it is starting to go away.  Then said no it is back call 911.  I said to just relax and tell me what you are feeling.  She said she felt jittery (her word for when she is nervous) and she had a burning in her upper back and neck.  Then it all passed.  I talked with her more and then called her doctors office.  I said we will see if she thinks you need to be seen.  I had to go through the desk and of course they always try to not put you through unless you are returning a call.  Otherwise they take a message.  I just told them outright that I needed to talk to Dr. Franck's nurse about an episode my 81 yo mother just had and see if she needs to come in or go to hospital and she put me right through to one of the doctors nurses.  So I explained everything to her and she said they would get back to us after conveying the info to the doctor.  This was at about 11:30 am.  They did not get back to us till about 2 pm.  The nurse that always talks to my mom called.  First instructions were to take motion sickness over the counter med if it happens again and then something about setting up an ultrasound and getting back to us.  After she was off I and she told me the above...I said why would you need to take the med if it only lasts a few minutes...the med could not even take effect in that short of time.  And I asked her what were they going to ultrasound and she said she did not know.  We never heard back from them. :(  Then mom said maybe she turned her head wrong and pinched a nerve in her neck, that could explain the pain in the neck and the vertigo.  I did let my sisters know what was going on.  Joanne brought a blood pressure set from work and checked that and it was 135/87...not bad!  I will check it occasionally this weekend and we will consider getting a kit.  They asked me on the phone when I called if I knew her B/P and I said no.  Hi or Lo B/P could explain the vertigo but I do not think it was that.  Also I had her put on her O2 and put her feet up.  I made her lunch.  She seems just fine now.  So really no clue what it was all about.  But glad I stayed cool and did not panic and call 911.  She did not need that.  I would have called if I thought she did.
Dorothy, the wreath looks wonderful on the door, much better than on the wall.  Wow, that Shogun is such a pistol.  How fast he discovered that new spot to sit and look out.  I cannot believe how high of spots he can get into and that he did not knock things out of the window, lol.
Josh and Jason both stopped in.  Tonight is Fondy's Homecoming game.  Tomorrow is the dance and both are going.  Josh is going solo and Jason has a date.  Trying to get her name out of him was like trying to pull teeth.  Finally got a first name and said I was going to look her up on face book.  I said all I had to do was look in his friend list and find a Taylor there...how many can you have?  So he told me her name and we looked her up and she is very cute.  He was so embarrassed, it was so funny.  Josh and Jason are so different yet so the same.  Josh is more outgoing and chatty.  Jason is much quieter and it is hard to get more than one word answers out of him but they both have the same sense of humor.  Josh will be 17 in a month and Jason is 14 going on 15 in the Spring.  To me, 14 seems so young to be taking a girl to a dance, but this is a different day and age.  I need to get with the times, lol.  So I will share some pics after I get some.
Not idea what tomorrow will be.  Good I hope.  Every time I try to talk to Suz she is on the run.  I wrote her a note on face book but tonight she had a wedding so not sure when she will see it.  I also told her to call me when she had time.
Not getting my hopes up.  Would rather be shocked that I get to go out, than be disappointed that I do not :)
Have a great weekend.
Hugs,

Gooood Morning.

Yesterday we woke to below freezing temperatures and about two inches of SNOW!  It covered everything, trees, deck, grass, except the pavement.  Purrrfect.  Better yet, it was completely melted by early afternoon leaving a pretty autumn day.  It's already in the 40s this morning, heading for the high 60s.  Ya gotta love Colorado ~ lol.

We did very little yesterday, and don't have much planned for today.  I'll make a meatloaf tonight and we may go for a ride while there is still some Fall color to see.  Trees are turning or have turned, and some have all the leaves gone already while others are still green.  Not turning the prettiest colors I've ever seen, but still pretty.    We need to drop some money off for a present about half of the neighbors are getting for one of the other neighbors who does so much volunteer work for the neighborhood.  

smiley2

Lou Ann, we've had really bright full moons for the last few days.  Beautiful.  If there was a lunar eclipse here I didn't see it.

That is surely not the kind of scare I like to get around Halloween ~ or any other time.  I'd have probably panicked and called 911, but you've been through a lot of these things with your mom so you kept a cool head.   It almost sounds like a blood clot, though with her thin blood that doesn't seem likely, does it?   I hate how the Dr's office just lets you sit and stew when you call in with something like that!  I'm sure they get a lot of folks who think a hangnail is an emergency, but that really was a dangerous situation ~ and it sounds like you knew more than the nurses did.  Sort of scary.

I hope she is ok today ~ and you, too.

Thanks.  I am pleased with being able to have the wreaths on the front door instead of he side of the house even if they won't show up as well from the street as they would in a house with out the covered porch.  I can leave the porch lights on when we get Mary Ann's Christmas wreath.

I hadn't thought about the 'danger' of Shogun being up there with the opportunity to play his favorite game ~ knock things off and see how much noise and what a mess I can make.   The bottles were plastic (shampoo and Neutrogena shower gel) and there was a tube of hair conditioner and a bar of soap, so he couldn't have had as much fun as if there had been glass bottles to smash into a bazillion pieces all over the bathroom, but still he could have made a mess.

Yesterday morning he crawled under the covers with me and curled up and went to sleep.  He didn't stir when I got up and he slept there until 1 PM!  No wonder he's such a Heller in the afternoon and early evening!    He is, in fact, sleeping under the covers again, as we speak.

I have my fingers crossed that you can get out for a drive while the leaves are still pretty.

Hello ladies...
I am not having a good day and I fear that my drive for the scenery will definitely not be happening.  My sisters life is a mess and she will not sit down and discuss it.  She ignores all notes I send her and when she came by she refused to talk, just hurried out.  She says she is leaving her husband because he opened a checking account in only his name and is having his check deposited there.  She has no access to it.  He says he is tired of not knowing where the money goes.  In that I agree, I have asked her repeatedly where their money goes and her answer is always I do not know.  I have offered to create a budget for them.  I have done it in the past for others and helped them to budget and save money.  But neither is interested.  I do not think they want to tell me where the money goes.  I am feeling so very depressed about it all.  I so not know why I care so much.  No one else seems to.  I know now that my mom is never going to get any of her money back.  Not from Suzanne and not from Leigh.  I do not know how they live with themselves.  When I owed her money, I could not rest till I paid her back.  But Suz and Leigh are the babies of the family...maybe that has something to do with it.  I do not know but I have to let go.  I will be spending tomorrow doing the same old thing.
Have a Blessed Sunday.
Hugs,

HelOOOOOooooooh.

I have to say, I'm loving all these Fall/Halloween borders and tags.  It just makes my face smile to come in and see all the decorations. 

Low key day for us yesterday.  We did go for a ride and dropped the money off for the gift for the neighbors. He is the guy who turns the outside water on and off for everyone and does so many other things like that, and his wife goes around pulling weeds and prettifying the neighborhood.  We have a service that does the big things, but they do so much more. They don't have to do any of this, but they enjoy doing it ~ and some of us enjoy having it done.  One of the women we share our British DVDs with organized this and requested anyone who wants to put in money for us to buy gift certificates for them and make a donation to the charity they work with bring the money to her house.  Apparently many of the neighbors didn't want to, Barbara was adamant that we should hire someone to do these things for example and didn't think it was right for us to get them a gift, but over half of the neighbors did want to go in on a thank you gift, Mike and me included.   Joanne will give them our gifts 'from your neighbors' rather than listing those who participated, which I think is great.   We sent them a plant last year to show our appreciation, but this gift coming from the whole neighborhood would have to make them feel appreciated, I would think.  Or at least I hope.  

 Pretty day here yesterday and a nice day to go for a ride.  Lots of trees are changing or have already changed, but they didn't change nearly as pretty as usual.  Maybe something to do with all the rain.

I made a meatloaf for dinner so we'll have a couple of extra meals.  We have to run some errands today and while we are out we'll probably get dinner out 

Mike took over my laptop yesterday afternoon and installed and ran a Malware program (MalwareByte) and also a 'clean up' software (CC Clean).  MalwareByte found some 1,900 different Malwares on my system!  No wonder it was running so slow! I had assumed my regular Virus Protection took care of that sort of stuff, but apparently not.  Then CCClean got rid of some program remnants that were left behind when I deleted unwanted programs.  It's still not running perfectly (popups I shouldn't get and things like that), but oh, so much better than it was! 

One of the things I was doing that he thinks installed the Malware was when I'd get a Pop Up and delete it and I'd get a message that said something like "Do you really want to leave this page?", I'd say "Yes".  Apparently when you do that, the program installs Malware ~ who knew?!   What I need to do when I get that hateful thing is hit Cntl-Alt-Delete rather than "Yes" and when it takes me to the task manager, delete that popped up page from there.  I had no idea, and I get a lot of those things, obviously. 

Mary Ann, we're working through our collection of Halloween type movie DVDs as well as watching SOME of the offerings on TV.  Several of our DVDs are things you recommended (Lady in White, Tower of Terror, and I think a couple of others that we really enjoy). 

Your slow cooker sounds great.  Our big one is a Williams Sonoma that we can brown meat in before slow cooking so you don't have to dirty two pans.  That works for me!  I don't think you can steam in it, but maybe I should do some research to find out ~ not that we make that much steamed.

Our neighbor Barbara, in case you have missed my earlier posts about her, is a recently retired surgeon from Ohio.  She chose this area to build her forever home because she loves skiing.  She is a committed Christian and plans to spend her retirement doing missionary work for as long as she is able.  She goes to these remote and very challenging places to donate her time as a surgeon and doctor, and also to hopefully reach people for Christ.  She sends emails and pictures talking about the circumstances under which she works and it's unbelievable.  What some of the people in our world suffer and what challenges those trying to help them face is beyond belief.  She is Japanese and shorter than I am (and that's short!) but she works out to build her strength and she's a dynamo!

Lou Ann ~ oooh, another new border to steal.  lol

I have been thinking of your drive to see the leaves and hoping it happens ~ I hate hearing that it might not.  Colorado has pretty color ~ most years ~ and I love it here, but when I remember the color in Minnesota and Wisconsin and Northern Iowa, there is no comparison.  We do have mountains though ~ ha.  This year our color is pretty puny, at least around here.  I haven't even tried to take pictures except in our neighborhood, and that just to document our trees and the rest of our neighborhood finally with no trucks or big dumpsters.  There is still a porta-potty, though.

From what you have shared, I don't blame Suzanne's husband for opening his own bank account.  When we got married we opened 'Yours' 'Mine' and 'Our' accounts, and we've continued that all of our married lives.  Of course either of us can access any of the accounts, but Mike would no more get into my account than I would his.  Most of our funds go into "Ours", but I believe strongly that it's important for each of us to have private funds. After having supported myself for so long before we were married, I couldn't have handled having to ask permission to buy a dress or something, and I would have hated as much for Mike to have to as my permission.  When we give each other gifts, they really are gifts, not something coming out of joint moneys.  It works for us, though it does involve more book keeping.  If Mike wants to buy something I think is crazy, as long as it doesn't come out of our joint account, it's none of my business and I won't criticize him. (Much. lol)  As long as the "Ours" account can cover our bills, all is well.   It would truly drive me over the edge and around the bend to not know where our money was going or have it spent for foolish things while we don't have enough to pay for auto repair or food or whatever without going into debt.  I would never have made it for 32 years in that kind of marriage. 

I'm assuming none of your other sisters has time for a Sunday drive.  I so wish you could go and take pictures ~ for ME!

Have a Swell Sunday, all!

No Autumn drive for me.  I got up to a drab day...I could tell it was very cloudy through my window blinds.  When I got to the bathroom I saw we were socked in with fog.  WOW, it has been a long time since I saw it that foggy, especially in the city.  Mom says when she went to church you could just see it rolling in off the lake from the north.  I never got bright today at all.
I am not saying that what my bil did was wrong.  But not discussing it with his wife and how they will handle bills was wrong.  He has access to her money. He also has a second part time job and he has always kept that money as his.  Yet when she works overtime, that money is not just hers.  She needs to open a new one in just her name and have her money put there.  I think he is getting ready to leave her...which I could not blame him for either, but he is far from perfect in all this.  I think he will walk away and leave the responsibility for those lazy boys to her to try and support.  I would not put this past him.  But since she will not talk to me about it, I cannot say what all is going on.  I know how much I could help if they would let me, but that is not going to happen either.  So I have to let is go.  But I remain irritated with my sister since she never responded to any of my messages for her and I know she saw them because face book tells you that.  So I did work on the Halloween skin today so that I at least accomplished something.  But I am feeling really down.
Hugs,

Good Morning.

What a difference a day makes.  Though it's still a big foggy this morning, it's also sunny and bright and heading for 56.   Yesterday was a different story.  Pretty but cold during the day, and then about the time we went out to run our errand and go for dinner it started to rain ~ and kept right on raining until we were ready to leave the restaurant, when the rain turned into SNOW!   

Remember the days (or maybe you still have them) when you loved to walk (or dance) in the snow and try to catch snowflakes on your tongue?  Well, those days are clearly over for me.  All I think about is how likely I am to slip and fall.  Heaven help me, I must be OLD!   I actually felt the same thing walking from the car to the restaurant in the rain.  Pathetic!  I was fine as frogs hair.  I have got to get over this fear of falling before it turns me into a shut-in.  Ha!

I need to take a few pictures of our neighbor's trees, if it isn't too late.  Most of them are red, and quite pretty.  Ours is red, and pretty skimpy, but then it's only a year old. 

This changing text size issue is driving me over the wall!  I've tried three times to fix it, and I'm giving up!

Lou Ann, Beautiful Halloween Page!  Thank you!

I'm so sorry you can't get to go for a Fall ride ~ I'm still hoping that somehow you will be able to.  

I know how concerned you are about Suz and her family and what will happen if they divorce.  Hopefully they will be able to get past this.  Maybe this is a wake-up call for her that she needs to deal with the situations that have grown over the years rather than just ignoring them and hoping things will somehow just work out.  Hopefully her husband is facing the same realities, and they can actually look at what needs to change before it's too late.  We had a similar situation in our family, and you just feel so helpless on the outside looking in.

Have a good day, anyway!

. . . . . . and how is everyone today?

Supposed to be a nice day today with the high around 65.  We plan to check out our Halloween/Fall inside decorations and maybe put a few up.  I have SO many decorations, but so few places to put them.  It's sad.  I wouldn't trade the Shogun for 'things', but it would sure be nice if i could have both.  We'll see if we can't at least put a few up.  

I have a couple of loads of laundry to fold and a few other little things I need to do, but nothing too exciting.  This is the laundry cart I was telling you about.  It folds up for easy storage, but then opens to hold your laundry basket so you can just roll it from bedroom to laundry room to "folding room".   It wouldn't have worked in our old house which had three layers of stairs between bedroom and laundry room, but here it works great.     (I know.  You're laughing at me being too Wussy to tote my own laundry basket.  LOL)

Lou Ann I'm so sorry you lost your post again.

Did you go to the (Bones) wedding last night?  I'm embarrassed to admit that i cried!  I want to watch it again, there was so much going on.   Loved it.

Are you watching The Witches of East End?   I think I'm going to like that one ~ took a few episodes to get into for me though.  


Have a hauntingly Happy Day.
