DAMN IT TO HELL AND BACK.

I JUST LOST MY FREAKING POST AGAIN AND I DO NOT KNOW

WHAT I AM DOING TO LOSE IT.  I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I SPEND ALL THAT TIME PICKING A TAG, FINDING OR MAKING A 

BORDER TO MATCH.  THIS ONE WAS MADE.  NOW IT IS GONE.  I

AM NOT STARTING OVER AS I AM SO TIRED.

SO HERE IT IS IN A NUTSHELL.

LOVE YOUR NEW CHAIRS.

MINE IS BROKEN.

JASON GOT MR. CONGENIALITY.

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET 1-3 INCHES SNOW TONIGHT AND

TOMORROW.  HOPING NOT.

HAPPY MIKE IS DOING SO WELL.

WISHING WE COULD CALL THIS ELECTION A WASH AND START 

IT ALL OVER AGAIN, WITH ALL NEW CANDIDATES.

JUST IMAGINE IT ALL WITH MUCH MORE PANACHE AND WIT AND

WITH A NICE MATCHING BORDER AND TAG.

LOVE YOU.  HUGS, LOU ANN

Hello 

Yesterday was SUCH a day.  Really nothing "bad" but irritating, starting with the fact that the trash men picked up all of the trash in our neighborhood except those on our street, which is a sort of main through street.  You'd think we'd be first.  They finally came at 4PM, but until they actually came, we didn't know if they'd just skipped us or what.   The same thing was true for the Recycle pick up, though they came a bit later for the rest of the neighborhood, they didn't pick ours up until 6PM.  We had everything out, like we are supposed to, at 7AM.   Not knowing whether they were going to come or not made me all tense and irritated.

Then the guys came an hour early to bring the chairs, which was good ~ but they had the devil's own time getting the backs attached.  He even suggested we might want to reject the one chair.  No can do ~ they took our other chairs last night, and we'd have no place to sit ~~ well, no comfy place.  They finally got them put together and set up, and I think we are going to love them.  Very comfortable.   

There were four or five other little irritations, not worth mentioning but all together they made Dorothy a crabby girl!

Shauna is coming this morning, and I wanted to have her clean the downstairs and make the bed down there, but she just called and she is taking her mom to the ER because she is having breathing problems.  She will call her brother to stay with her mom and then come to us, so she'll be here later today.  I think I will wait until next time to have her clean the downstairs, because I'm sure she'll want to get back to her mom as soon as possible.   I love that when something comes up she always calls with so many apologies and still gets here as soon as she can.  She is so responsible.  Her whole family was sick with a nasty flu bug a few weeks ago and her mom, who had been hospitalized for a heart procedure, apparently never completely  threw it off.   Hopefully they will be able to give her a treatment or something and help her quickly.

I see I was not the only one frustrated.  I can't believe you lost your post AGAIN!   Maybe you should start to copy it and paste it into an email or something, just in case.  What a pain!

Oh, no!  Your chair is broken?  The bedroom one or the living room one?   Is it fixable?  Damn.

Yay for Jason, Mr Congeniality!   Your kids are so personable and talented.  ;-)

Isn't it time to be through with the snow now?  I won't say too much, because I know we could get hit again too.  For now, it's sunny and staying in the 60s and low 70s.  Shhhhh. Don't let The Fates know. 

Oh, how I agree with you.  I don't necessarily want to have to relive the last several months, but I would love to have a magic time machine just change most of what has gone on in the election cycle.  I think when we finally get to the main event, both candidates are going to be so damaged that we ~ on both sides ~ will just be voting Against, and not For.   I've done that the last several times, and I can't tell you how I hate it.

Have to say, I've never been a big fan of the Clintons but I just watched (again!) Bill telling off a Black Lives Matter Protester, and I loved it!   Reminds me of his Sistah Soljer moment many years ago.  Everyone is giving these "Protesters" so much deference and most of them are little more than thugs, no matter which Protest Group they represent. Many of them are just paid to be obnoxious, and it beats having a real job.  Half the time if a reporter asks them what they want, they just get "Bleep. Bleep. Bleep".  3/4 of them haven't a clue what they are protesting or what would make the protests no longer necessary.  It's about time someone stood up to one of them. 

The whole political season is the worst I can remember.   I didn't hear Trump's dumb comment on abortion, but only heard about it after the fact.  I never watch Chris Matthews, but I understand he was throwing rapid fire questions and Trump responded thoughtlessly on the abortion issue ~ and then walked it back later, saying that if abortions were illegal the Dr performing them should be arrested, not the woman.  I am Pro-Life, but I honestly don't think that Roe v Wade will ever be overturned, so it's just nothing more than a Gotcha hypothetical question.    I would like to see our tax $$ not given to Planned Parenthood.  There are so many other places that provide for women's health without being primarily an abortion mill.  The thing I really hate is that our tax $$ go to Planned Parenthood, and Planned Parenthood in turn donates large sums to Hillary.  My mind works simply.  It seems like a money laundering way of funneling our Tax money into Hillary's campaign, and I resent the heck out of it.   It doesn't seem like it should even be legal.  

Good luck with getting your next post to go through ~ and have a great day!

Well here I am again.  I keep coming back like a bad penny.
I lost the 2nd of 2 posts.  Did you see the 1st one on page 2? I ask because you did not mention it and I thought you make have come right to page 2.  

I bought and extended warranty with my chair that starts 3 months after purchase and lasts 2 years, so they will either repair or replace it.  The sad thing is that the replace with be a gc for Shopko where I bought it...for the price I paid for it and none of the tax, etc.  I was going to look elsewhere for the next chair.  They just do not sell what I want.  But maybe I can look at a more expensive one and add the difference.  Though the original price on the one I bought was $799.00.  I so want my old one back, lol.  It was heaven on earth.  But, one way or another I will have somewhere to sleep.

It is snowing again.  I got up to snow this morning but it was not on the streets or sidewalks.  Then it melted but now it is snowing again.  Sadly yesterday it was snowing early and roads were slick.  Jason's school counselor was killed when he lost control coming down a hill and his car turned sideways on the road and he was T-boned by a truck.  He was only 35 and has 3 small children.  They wanted to postpone Mr. Fond du Lac but knew they could never reach everyone.  They did dedicate the night to him and started a fund, by collecting from the audience that will pay for his children's college educations.  They will have on going events to raise money for the college funds.  Jason says he was a good guy.

Poor Shauna, she sure does not need any more issues to deal with.  I feel for her.  Chris cleaned here today, but it seemed to me that she was here and gone.  I told mom she needs to make more demands on her time.  She needs to put furniture back when she moves it.  We had to put the table in the kitchen back and our stools and chairs.  I wanted her to change the shower curtain as we still have the snowman one up but mom could not find it.  For some reason she does not clean the tub.  That irritates me.  She does not dust anymore either.  She should at least to the living room. Now I will have to do it.  She did a load of laundry too during the time involved, which is a separate deal entirely.  I think she takes advantage, though I kept hearing mom say, oh nevermind that or no need today.  She is still not comfortable having someone else clean the house and it does not bother me in the least.  She is being paid well in my opinion.  Not even here 2 hours and she gets $30.00.  I was not even making that much an hour when I left my job of 32 years in 2007.  Wow, I cannot believe it has been that long.

I am going to try and tag you in a video of Jason's talent performance.  It is funny.  Diane said he came in 1st in talent and 4th over all. They always pick a senior so he will have a better chance of winning next year.

This is the tag and I remade the border again that I had last night but lost.  So you did not miss much of anything.
I am MOTW and the first challenge is to use a tube that is smiling and have the word Smile on the tag somewhere.
This is one of the ones I have gotten so far.

RE:WELCOME TO APRIL CHAT

We're heading for 73 today, and no winds ~ yay!   Yesterday was tiring, but the house is nice and clean again.  Shauna's mom was admitted to the hospital while she was here and her brother was there with her mom.  They think she has pneumonia.   Shauna is such a good mom to her three, but she has also taken in her niece and both her mom and dad have had surgeries and she tries to look out for them.  They are divorced so she can't do her care giving all in one place ~ and her Grandpa died last week.  I don't know how she does all that she does.  She's such a good kid.  She says that she loves cleaning and gardening and it's a stress reliever for her ~ to our definite benefit!  I'm glad I'm able to help her relieve her stress by providing her with a dirty house twice a month.  

Mike found a new vanity chair for me to use when I'm putting on makeup and doing my hair.  The one I had is too short for our ridiculously high counters.  I practically could chin myself on the sink sitting there.  It's also heavy (wood and fabric) to move, so Mike found a really nice one for me on wheels and a bit taller and put it together yesterday.  Shauna helped finish putting it together, and I gave her my old one for her oldest daughter to use. Happy result for all of us. ;-)

Last night we tried a new place that just opened in Arvada called Stubens  for carry out fried chicken.  OhMyGosh, the crowd!  They are going to have a carry out pick up but don't yet, however Mike told them that we had problems coming in to pick things up and they delivered it to our car in the pick up parking spot.  They are very warm and gracious ~ and the food is delicious.  It's basically "home cooking", comfort food type of things and I'm sure we'll be going in for some meals as soon as it's less crowded.  The folks were lined up with their numbers all across the building last night!

No ~ I didn't see the Spring Post!  I'm glad you mentioned it, so I could go back and check it out.  I usually try to make sure I haven't missed any post, but maybe because you had a couple of "I can't post" posts or something, I did miss it!

It was fun to see how the challenge was presented and what you did with it.  All of your tags are beautiful, and I particularly liked the Sabine Rich one ~ I suspect just because I'm feeling "green" today.  All are simply lovely!  The pup with the cookies and cupcakes is adorable!  Makes me laugh.

I hope they can fix or repair your chair.  Having been through replacing nearly all of our recliners lately, I do know how hard it is to find something you like that is really comfortable for a half way decent price.  The brown one I replaced in the "Morning Room" had been repaired at least three times!

OhMyGosh, how awful about Jason's counselor!  We are always aware that the older folks in our little worlds are not likely to be with us forever, or if someone has a progressive or chronic illness, but we never worry about someone so young and vital, and of course they are at every bit as much risk.  Just one more reminder not to take anyone or anything for granted.

It's too bad but not surprising that Chris is not doing the job she is paid to do.  A lot of that is your mom's fault.  If Chris thinks she doesn't need to dust or clean the tub, she won't.  I don't think anyone would, they'd just assume you'd rather do it yourself and don't want them to do it.  I know you can't tell your mom what she should do or say, but what's the point of having someone clean for you if they don't CLEAN.  Your mom is spending good money to get the job done, and I think Chris would be willing to do it right if she thought your mom wanted her to.  Must my two cents.

I'd love to see Jason's performance!   What other categories do they have besides talent?  Coming in first in talent would be huge, I think ~ and I also thing that picking a Senior is a good thing.  It's their last chance.

Congratulations Miss MOTW!   Cute tag and great matching border.

Let's have a Swell Saturday, shall we?  

D.

Poor Shauna, she works so hard and nothing good ever seems to happen for her.  She is being stretched so thin.  I hope she can handle all this.  So sad that about her grandpa.  I hope that she can deal with all of this.  I am glad that her brother is able to step up and help out.  

Ooh, I am jealous about your fried chicken.  I have been wanting some chicken like that.  Then Jo picked mom up early for the Mr. Fond du Lac and she picked up chicken and they had it before going.  So she will not be wanting it anytime soon.  Oh well...

I tagged you on a post I did of Jason's performance.  I have a picture to post here.  Jason is kneeling on the left and the girl that was with him in the song is above him in turquoise. 
 
He says he can't sing but he can.  Josh taught his a few chords on the guitar for his false start, lol.

I am seeing on facebook that they had a birthday party at Louann an Bruce's today for Liam. It looked like there were a lot of Kirstie and Nick's friends, but I think others too and I am freaking a bit because I was not invited.  Maybe it was only their friends but then I think they would have had it at their own home.  I cannot let it go.  It is driving me crazy. Do you think it is wrong to ask Louann about it?  I think I am going to have to if I am going to have any peace at all in this.  It is all I can think about and it is driving me crazy.  I am sure I am being silly but I cannot help it.  I am always invited.

So, anyway, Brent is coming tomorrow but have not heard exactly when. So I need to contact him.

Here is another Spring tag.  Really a different take on it and I love it.
XOXOXO

Hello

Our weather is changing a bit.  We should still be in the mid-60s all week, but we should also get rain, almost every day!   That's probably a good thing, except that the cars are both still clean and we want to finally go out for that dinner at the Bonefish this afternoon and we have a couple of appointments during the week.  Is there an umbrella you can get for your car when it's clean?

Yesterday afternoon we went for a ride just to get the Chrysler out of the garage and be sure it's running well, and then we came home and met for a drink in the library before dinner.  That's the 'it' for the excitement in our world. ;-)

It's a bit overcast today, so we are able to stay in the Great Room rather than being chased by the blinding sun to the Morning Room.  Kinda nice to spend some time in the new chairs.

I think the neat thing about the new restaurant is the array of "comfort food" cookin', including really good fried chicken.  I'm trying to avoid the carbs or there were many, many things on the menu that I would have loved I think.  They use a wee bit too much pepper for me, but I basically don't like pepper at all so I suspect everyone else would love it.    I remember watching an episode of the old Martha Stewart show when she had her mom cooking with her.  She went on to say how much she loved pepper, and her mom just looked at her and asked "Why?".   I just hooted, and I adored Mrs Kostryka from that moment on.  LOL   There is a link to the menu for Stubens on the site I posted yesterday.  

Oh I love the picture.  What a cutie.  Is he a Junior this year?  I'll look forward to the picture with him in his crown next year.  ;-)   I didn't see the video on Facebook, and I'm not sure where to look if it doesn't pop up in my timeline.  I don't think I will ever understand how Facebook works.  Sometimes the whole world gets to see the things we just 'like', but then the things we actually share aren't seen.  What pops up on one's timeline and what doesn't is a pure mystery.   I'll keep on the lookout.  

I am sure I would feel like you do about not being invited to Liam's birthday party and not knowing why.  I'm sure there is a reason ~ too many of Kristie and Nick's friends coming?   Maybe just Kristie and Nick's friends and the immediate families invited?  I can't really make good guesses, but I do think it would be fine to ask Louann about the party.  Maybe not so much "Why wasn't I invited", but "I see you had a party for Liam's birthday . . . . . " (pregnant silence with an opportunity for her to fill in the dots).  I can't believe it was in any way that they didn't want you.

Today is Star Wars Day?   I love that Brent wants to share it with you, as you once shared it with him. ;-)

I do love your new Spring tag ~~~ and I love mine, too!  

Have fun.  May the Force be with you!

Monday, Monday.

I've been awake since before 4AM, and finally gave up and got up.  It's now 5:15 AM Denver time.

We went to the Bonefish for dinner last night.  Sadly, their food which used to be so wonderful is not anymore.  Not bad, just not great, and so disappointing.  Mike had been 'dreaming of' the haddock dish that sounded so good online, and it really disappointed him.   I was choosing between two new items, a salmon with Jim Beam Bacon Butter (!) or the lobster stuffed shrimp on cooked spinach.  I couldn't decide so I asked the waitress and she said "Without a doubt, the shrimp.  It's delicious".   So I went with that, and she was right.  We shared the Bang Bang Shrimp, which is one of their signature dishes.  It's Thai and way too hot for me, but usually the shrimp is so succulent and delicious that I spear two with my chop sticks before the fire takes out my taste buds.  I did so again tonight, but the shrimp itself wasn't as good as it used to be.  It used to be small shrimp, fried in a wonderful batter so it was crisp on the outside but oh, so tender and succulent inside.  Tonight, not so much.  Mike can't eat the whole dish by himself, so tonight I asked how that reheated and the waitress said it was great and made a great snack, so we took the leftovers home.  We'll see how that works out for him.  Then for dessert, we had their awesome Strawberry Short Cake ~ home made shortcake, huge marinated strawberries and whipped cream.  Even sharing it we couldn't finish, so we brought home maybe a third of it to have for breakfast this morning!  :-D

The forecast was for rain to start in the late afternoon/early evening, but we made it home maybe 10 minutes before it started.  Another good thing about going for a very early dinner ~ old folks style. 

It looks like they have taken the "rain every day this week and snow on the weekend" forecast off, at least until the weekend.  I was kind of looking forward to some Rainy Days and Mondays.

I'm so sorry you've been hurt.  I really hope it was just a misunderstanding and all will quickly be well again.  You don't need to discuss it unless and until you feel like it ~ but I'm here for you.

Love you much.

My heart is not broken, just bruised.  Mostly of my own 

doing but I feel it is partly theirs too.

It was Liam's birthday party and I was invited.  Kirstie did a 

Facebook Event which I never saw.  I said when I did not respond

didn't you think that was odd? I always say if I am coming or not.

She said by my name is said seen so she assumed I could not come.

I always let them know if I am not coming.  And they always know I

need a ride.  I never remember to check to see birthdays or I would

have seen the birthday party notice.  I even think I did check once

but usually ignore events or delete them as I never seem to know who

they are from.  I blame myself because I have too many friends on 

Facebook...not real friends but too many gaming friends...I am over

1000.  I should try deleting some but do not know where to begin.

So I feel horrible that I did not see it.  But I am angry that they 

ignored me.  I have never not come to anything without telling them.

So I feel like they have let me down.  But maybe I expect too much

of them.  They are busy in their own lives.  Louann does so much for

others and it was just being held there.  Kirstie was doing the rest.

She works and has Liam and hubby.  But I saw her following up with 

friends...would they be bringing their kids, etc.  So that is why I 

thought it was just their friends.  It is all very silly but it is just one

more thing that makes me feel unneeded and unnecessary.  Totally

forgettable, useless and so many more negative things.  On top of all

of this all the never ending rain and cold when I am longing for Spring.

It just all came to a head at once.  I will get over it all.

I am sorry that Mike's food and yours was not up to par.  Maybe it is

time to find some new great restaurants.  Ask your neighbors for some

suggestions.  I bet they know some great places to go.

Me?  I am going somewhere but where that might be, I do not know.

Probably to hell for thinking bad thoughts about the wonderful

Fauska family.  Who have sworn from now on there will be an email, 

personal message of phone call.  See!!!  I should be ashamed of myself.

I love you.  Thanks for putting up with me.

XOXOXO

Good Morning!  

Nice quiet day yesterday and we got a few loads of laundry done, but not much more. 

Lucky me, I have a visit to the Periodontist at noon. Fun, fun, fun.   The weather is still holding though so I shouldn't need that umbrella for the car.  

I can understand how you feel about being left out, and I agree they should have followed up on their online invitation since you always "RSVP".  That you felt left out and hurt is understandable, but I'm glad to know that there wasn't a "Shhh. Don't tell Lou Ann" type of thing going on.  It was hard to imagine that there was, but of course that's always a possibility and that really would have been deeply hurtful.  I know you are disappointed and hurt, but you know ~ for sure ~ that they love you and it was just a misunderstanding.  I'm so glad!  

You are too "shut in", and it makes things hard and makes you NEED to get out and do things with friends more.  Actually, you do a lot more than I do (chuckle), but Mike and I are able to go more easily and so I have a sense of freedom ~ I can do what I want, when I want to ~~ as long as I don't want to do anything that involves much walking, or HAVING to drive myself.(lol)  Silly as that is, I think it does make a difference.  I am dependent too, but it's on Mike.  My world is very small and yours is much larger, but you are dependent on others and that makes you feel vulnerable.   I'm saying this badly ~ I hope you can read what I mean instead of the awkward way I'm saying it.

Good Morning!

Another beautiful day in the neighborhood.  We should see 75 today.  I do love the 70s.  ;-)

Periodontal Appointment yesterday.  The good news is that it's over.  I experience serious pain ~~~ in my ears.  Bless her, my Hygienist Marsha never pauses for a breath.  The words just keep pouring out on any number of very boring topics.  I would just tune her out and 'go away in my head' but she expects me to respond ~ with a mouthful of sharp tools.  Then she stops working to gesture excitedly about whatever she is talking about so I begin to despair that we'll never be done.   She gets so caught up in her dialog that she gets a bit rough from time to time as well.    Ahhh, escape!

On a seriously good note though, I effectively argued my case and got a reprieve.  I've been going to her twice a year and my dentist twice a year ~~ total of four times a year.   I've skipped a couple of appointments with my dentist just because going in every three months is just too hard.  So today I plead my case and told the Periodontist that her predecessor (whom I loved) had told me I would ultimately be able to visit him once a year and my dentist once a year, a 'normal' every six month visit to one or the other of them.   She agreed, somewhat hesitantly, but she agreed with the caveat that if my teeth didn't stay in good shape I'd have to start the more frequent appointments again.  I can't argue with that ~~ but for now, I'm FREE.  Sort of.  Yay!    

I hope everything is going well for you today.

I am here and I am ok, but very tired and way behind on everything. I was not here yesterday because the ladies, Carole and Gloria were over. We had a nice night and avoided politics the best we could, though Carole was pushing for a discussion/argument. She is sadly a big Trump fan because he has no ties to special interests. I said bull, he has ties to them all over the world and he is going to do what benefits him best. I said what about Cruz?  No, he has ties to them too. She is living in a bubble. They did not leave until 11. Winter they go home early, but the closer to summer, the longer they will stay.

Today I got up to snow...it was snow squalls and the snow was coming from every which way and kept getting bigger and bigger. But as the day warmed up, away it went. That was good. But I was chilled so covered up in my chair which made me warm and toasty and sleepy. So I slept on and off all morning. Then mom reminded me that I had not paid my bills this month, only hers and ours. So that was next.  So that is all done for another month. But I am way behind due to the ladies and bills, lol. Oh, and sleeping. 

 I checked into the video of Jason and found that Joanne posted it with only friends could see. So even though I posted it, my friends cannot see it. So I have asked her to post it to me with the share group being friends of friends.Then you all will be able to see it.  

Yay for the extension on visiting the periodontist. I am sorry that she gets rough at times. How can you handle that? I would not be comfortable telling her that, lol. And how can you say you would like to see a little more work and a lot less action/chat?  Oh Lord.

Thanks for all your kind words and understanding and for listening to me and not getting all disgusted and bored with me. I know that I am overly sensitive but that is me and their is nothing I can do to change that. I was chatting with Rissa to see how she was feeling and she told me she felt terrible about it. Said she was going to stop and call me but then got busy with something and forgot. She also said she and Samuel hung out in the basement as there were too many people and kids and it was all overwhelming to Samuel and her. I said then it was probably best that I was not there as I get anxious in crowds and I could get sick from the kids. Also, I did not see anyone I knew in the pictures...other than Louann and Bruce. I did not see any of the aunts and uncles, etc. I also told her she needed to visit as Sam was going on 2 and mom had never met him.  She said she would soon but that this week was bad. I said come anytime...we are here.

So got to go and do the email. No getting to bed early tonight I see. Maybe if I push it. I do a lot of deleting and without reading. I have to. At least 200 emails a day.  I just cannot deal with it. I am going to go no mail in some and see if I want to give them up. I have been trying to be copyright compliant and many of those groups are not. They have actually started taking people to court over using artists works without their permission. So do I even want to deal with not compliant groups. On top of that, I own one. Have for years and I would feel so guilty ending the group and I do not have time to check everything that comes through for compliance. I am just torn and it also makes me anxious. Is it worth it? I do not know.

Chat with you tomorrow my dear friend.

XOXOXO

RE:WELCOME TO APRIL CHAT
(Date Posted:04/14/2016 3:17 PM)




Late today.   We went to the Original Pancake House (OPH) for breakfast, and it's a 45 minute drive from our house.  I didn't have time between my shower and leaving to stop in.

Breakfast was a definite treat ~ and I stayed low carb, pretty much.  We split their huge succulent strawberries in whipped cream, and then we split their cheese omelet, which is baked and really large, and bacon.  I had maybe a fourth of the omelet and I was stuffed.   The omelet comes with three pancakes, which we brought home for Mike to have for a snack sometime (lunch? side with dinner?)  I would never have dreamed of taking pancakes home from a restaurant until one time when we were out with our friend Donna and she brought half of her pancakes home.  The next time we had them out, we did too, and surprise, surprise ~ they were great!

Then we stopped at the Hallmark store to restock ~~ and when I went to pay for my cards, my Credit Card was missing!   Fortunately I had the cash to pay, but I have no idea where I could have left or lost my card!  I don't actually use the card in public that much. I do order a lot using it online, but I don't actually get it out to look at it.  I checked my chase bill and previous statement, and the last time I can see that I used it in a Brick and Mortar store was toward the end of February, so I don't think it's been stolen or I would see usage on it.  I will do a little more checking around here and then call Chase and report it lost.  I so hate to do that because I have the current number on file in so many places ~ and I won't be able to order anything online until I get the new one.  

You are excused, since the Ladies were there.    I have to say, it seems like Trump supporters are like Obama supporters and apparently Bernie supporters.  Unbudgably devoted and nothing will move them.  No point in arguing.  I have a few Trump friends too, and while I've never gotten into it with them, it's clear their support verges on passion.  This is going to be a Long, Hot Summer!  Then I suppose in December (giving a few weeks after the election), we will see candidates gearing up for the next election!  Aarrgghh.   Our country is in so much trouble I don't think anyone can save it ~ no one here on earth, anyway.  smiley74  It really breaks my heart.

I think we got up to 73 today ~ beautiful day, but the clouds are rolling in.  That's actually kind of nice because we see so much sun-in-your-face, but I think we may get rain and who knows, maybe even snow over the weekend.  Crazy.

I have a bill to pay, too ~ and I have to give one more attempt to find that Chase Credit Card.   Poop! 

Not to worry ~ I completely understand how you felt and I'm glad to be here for you, as I know you are for me.  I did think that maybe it wasn't an entirely bad thing that you didn't go, because I know how the noise gets to you in the big crowds (like it would me!) and how hard it is to find a comfy place to be where you can be part of the conversation.  Of course that wasn't really the issue ~ if you'd been invited and chosen not to come it would have been entirely different.  I'd feel the same.

Oooh, I thought MY email was bad!  Well, actually it IS.  I belong (one way or another) to several news groups and they are very prolific with their mailings ~ many of them requesting donations ~ ha.  I often learn an interesting tidbit, so I haven't unsubscribed, though I should.  I can't keep up with them.  Then a few of my friends "need" to forward every piece of mail that crosses their PCs.  Some are interesting and fun, some I have seen at least 50 times.  Anyway, it takes me forever and a week to get through emails, and I'm not even close to the volume you get.   I really need to take charge!   (Tomorrow ~ lol)

Have a lovely evening and I'll see ya on the flip side.  smiley82

Ooohhhh, I could really go for IHOP. I love their potato pancakes.  Have not had any in a long long time.  Petrie's a Bavarian style restaurant that used to be here had them about once a month.  Mom and I like to shop the Farmer's Market and then we would go there for lunch.  I would get an omelette and when they had potato pancakes I would get them.  But they have been gone many years now.  They would definitely be high carb, lol.

Now today when I thought I would get caught up on things, Suz asks me if I can do Jordan's taxes.  Really?  On April 14th?  Cutting it close, aren't we? I told her fine but Jordan had to be available for answering questions.  So I thought Jerry would bring the stuff over...nope.  So I texted Suz before she got off work and said I need to get going on those taxes. So thought she would bring them and call me after work but no....so I call her and she is getting her hair cut and forgot. And she had other things to do.  I said today is the last day to get free state filing so she had better find the time so she brought them over just as we were going to eat.  So I started them right after supper.  So I text Jordan because I need his birthdate and I was mixed up on the year and I needed to know his occupation.  No response.  So I call him, no response.  I knew Suz was not home but I texted her and no response so I called her.  She answered after it nearly went to voicemail.  She said she tried to call him too and no answer.  She gave me birth date and we decided to just say factory worker for occupation. So I had to call again and caught her as she was getting home.  Apparently Jordan was asleep.  When I asked about where he would want the returns to come to she said they were being rerouted to his fines so he would not get them.  But I had to have somewhere.  I said do direct deposit as it would come a lot faster.  But she had no clue what the routing number and account number was as he just had savings for his check to be deposited in.  So I just set it up for them to send him a check.  He can deal with how the state will get their money and if they do not then he can just go back to jail.  I did not get a thank you from anyone.  Just like when I sent Christmas presents home for Travis and Jordan when I am technically not supposed to even be giving them one.  I got no acknowledgement that they got them and no thank yous.  There will be no more presents.  Travis turns 26 next month and will no longer be covered under his families insurance.  He just plays computer games, eats and sleeps and gets fatter every day.  Yet his parents are barely making it week to week.  Mom lets her add groceries on her bill each week.  She is such a sucker.  She also gave her $5.00 today for gas for going to the bank for her and she had the gall to take it. I said to mom, they owe you thousands of dollars and you give her money and I cannot believe she took it. I told mom that when she died, if there was any money left over, Suz and Leigh would not be getting any of it.  He borrowed $5000 when getting a divorce and has only paid back $500, though Suz owes more than that.  They both make me so mad. Especially since I have paid her back every last cent I have ever borrowed.  Even for when I had no income for 6 months.  Ok, that was a bit of a rampage.  I am done now.  

Do you ever get your card out when you are ordering? If so, where do you usually do that from?  A credit card can slip down between almost anything, or between the pages of a book or magazine.  Maybe a different compartment of you purse?  Check under things that it might have slipped under.  I am sure you will find it.  I am sure if a restaurant found your card they would have called you.  I will keep my fingers crossed for finding it.  Did you change purses??  Time to finish up.  I want to learn to script and am not finding the time for it, lol.
XOXOXO

Good Morning ~ Second attempt. I wiped out my first post via a brain phart.  

Yesterday it was 73 degrees and beautiful here.  Tonight and for the next three days, it's supposed to snow!  To make that more special, I have a much overdue haircut scheduled for tomorrow morning.  I think I'm just going to cancel and try to reschedule for Tuesday or Wednesday if I can.  Then, of course tomorrow morning will be beautiful and snow free.  Some days, I can not win.  :-(

The OPH has wonderful high carb things that make you drool.  We used to get the Continental Crepes ~ to die for.  Their pancakes are wonderful and so are the other menu items.  We discovered the cheese omelet a while back, and as I said, it's baked and so very high and full.  I can't imagine how anyone could eat a whole on (though I've seen people do it).  Sort of like the German pancakes ~ huge.  How can you eat an entire one ~~ but people do, and smile!  lol  The cheese omelet is delicious and pretty low carb and so is the bacon which is thick and delicious, so if you have that, it's a pretty low carb meal, filling and delicious.    Not that trying to stay low carb is doing a lot for me.  I loose an ounce a month ~ or so it seems. :-(

OMG ~ The Queen of Last Minute, is our Suz!   Quick, do Jordan's taxes.  They are due tomorrow!   She owes you Big Time!  Ha!  

Then I read on ~ unbelievable!   Do it all, and don't bother us with questions.  Just "Make it so #1".  Sheesh!   I know she does a lot for you and your mom, but it's so easy to let someone know that you appreciate their efforts ~ and particularly when they dumped it all on you last minute.  You know that when he gets that check, he's going to cash and spend it, and "mom and dad" won't say a word.  It's a real shame.

I really hate not at least having people acknowledge that they GOT whatever I sent, even if they can't part with a Thank You.   It's so frustrating because I can't track it if I don't know it's missing, and if I ask "Did you get it?" that's like saying "Aren't you going to thank me?".  Alice was just horrid about that.  I'd call and say "Did you get it?" (Yes).  "Did it fit?" (Yes)   Did you like it?  (Yes)   Sheesh!   My niece Mary Ann  is good about letting me know she got something and saying thanks.  She used to make her lovely Christmas wreaths for several family members and friends, but only a couple of us ever said "Thanks", and she realized she didn't like going to all that work and not being acknowledged.  I think maybe I am the only one who still gets a wreath now, though maybe Catherine does since she's now in the same town.   Anyway, I hear you loud and clear and agree!

Katie is good about acknowledging what I do for Jack, and the boys (Aaron and Robert) are hit and miss.  Sometimes I haven't a clue whether they even received it.  I know from my UPS or USPS receipt that it got there, but whether they got it or not, I'm not sure.  (Did it fit?  Did you like it?   LOL)

I hate that the family takes advantage of your mom.   I know how hard you work to repay every penny you ever borrow, and I hate that the others don't feel any obligation to do the same.   Mike's folks did so much for his brother and sister it was hard not to resent it.  On the one hand, we both felt strongly that it was their money to do what they wanted to with, but still when there are three kids and one is watching the other two with their hands always out, it's hard to be gracious.   When we visited we always took them out for meals and did things for them, until we began to realize that everything we did for them with regard to paying for things while we visited, was just going to Tom and Marianne, so while it was actually hard for us to just let them pay for everything (or almost everything), in the later years we did ~~~ just to "help" them be more fair.   It's one thing to do for your kids when they are young, but folks in their 50s should jolly well not have Mom and Dad paying for all their expenses!     (Oooh, who pulled my chain?!  Ha!)

I emptied and repacked my purse (the only one I was using) and even checked in my tote that I take my PC from room to room and everywhere else I could think of for that Credit Card.   I have the actual number written down in a book that I keep with me, so I don't pull the actual credit card out to order online,  The card hasn't been used in a Brick and Mortar store since the end of February.  I strongly suspect it is here somewhere, but I am out of clues, so I will report it as missing.  Crap!

Gorgeous Border and Tag.   There you go, learning new things while I struggle to remember the old ones ~ lol.

Love 'n Hugs,

Dorothy

  I did not make that tag.  It was made by Willow, a member of the CDO Diamond group I am in.  It is beautiful, isn't it?  The Vintage Angel tubes are all so beautiful.  I have not made anything in a while.  Wait, I made 2 tags while I was MOTW and I made them for you too, so will have to share them soon.  This is a by week, so no challenges.

I love omelettes, but the 3 egg ones are so big, especially when filled with good stuff.  I like ham, cheese, onions and gr. pepper.  But bacon would be just as good.  Yumm.  I make my self microwave scrambled eggs every Sunday for breakfast. Unless I get up too late and it is too close to lunch time.  Last night I did not get to bed till 4:30 am. So stupid. But I got up at 9:30 am so hopefully will be sleepy as I took no naps today.

Did you check to see if your card fell out in the car?  Maybe slipped under the seat or between them?  Wish you would not have to go through all that.  I have a back up card in case there are ever issues like this.

Mom and I were terrible yesterday into today.  I had done a Prime Pantry order and got several flavors of the Oreo Thins as someone had told me they loved them.  I do love how thin they are.  I had the ones with mint creme and mom had the ones with white cookies as she does not like the mint.  The mint are almost as good as eating Girl Scout Thin Mints.  But within a 24 hr period, we both had eaten our package of cookies.  We are pigs and I am a bad influence on my mom, lol.  There is just one package of reg. oreo thins left.  We did get a package of full size oreos with the birthday cake creme filling.  They were delish and we ate those up last weekend.  Since we cannot show restraint, I will have to stop buying them or hide them, lol.  With me it is out of sight, out of mind...but mom likes to set them out and then I just cannot ignore them.  It is a good thing she is below goal or she would be in trouble for Mon weigh in, lol.

I do not know what ever happened to manners.  None of my nephews seem to have them.  I never hear from Leigh's boys either.  Jo's boys I see get there gifts and if I do not, then they text or call me.  I would not think that saying thank you for a gift was a thing of the past.  Louann and Bruce's kids always have.  And they make sure their kids do too!  Sad really.

So, it is supposed to be nice this weekend.  Maybe I will get out on the porch for a while if it is.  I am sure that will perk me up and make me feel better.  Chat with you tomorrow dearest D.

XOXOXO
