Wow, this border really turned out big, really big...too big, lol.  I think this one will wither and die with this post.  Your Moroccan Dinner looks wonderful.  You know we used to make Foreign meals.  I di not recall which country this was for but it required pounding out beef roast to much thinner.  Then making a fruit paste that had dates and bananas and whatever else was required and rolling up the roast with the paste like a jelly roll.  It was the grossest thing I have ever attempted to eat.  Bananas and beef do not go well together.  I do not know if it was something Nan did or if they liked that flavor but none of us ate it other than Geela (Louann & Bruce dog at the time).  It is funny as it is the only meal that i remember.  I made a dip item where I had to gut a pineapple and make a dip made from cream cheese and other items I do not recall and put it in the pineapple.  Then on skewers I had pineapple chunks, black olives and I think little cherry tomatoes. They were all poked in all over the pineapple and you then dipped them in the dip.  My part was good.
Your yard sounds wonderful.  I wish I could be there to see it and smell it.  How nice to get a flowering replacement.  Yay for that.
Chris was still on probation for domestic abuse so I think she got a revocation of her probation.  Scott thought she might have to be in jail for 90 days.  He was going to try and see her this evening.  They have very strict rules and visiting hours. Her sister stopped in today to drop something off by Scott and she really did not know anything more than Scott did.  So we will see.  She seemed to think Scott was going to try and talk to the landlord into one more chance, I do not think it will be given.  Chris has shit everywhere.  He will never be able to more half the crap and if he misses anything, there will be hell to pay from Chris.
Gotta make supper so need to go.  Chat at you.

It's officially Summer!   We're scheduled to be in the mid 90s through the weekend, and in the 80s after that!     Looks like I'd better water those Dahlias at least every other day! 

On the porch yesterday, I got the faintest scent of Mock Orange, stronger when I stood over it.  The bush is only about 2' or so, and i imagine it will be a while before it grows bigger and offers a stronger scent ~ but it's still wonderful and I'd forgotten how pretty the little blossoms are.   I'll take a picture later today and share.  The bush we had taken out was as tall as I am standing on the porch, which means it was 2 or 3 feet taller ~ but nary a single blossom.   Too bad to just have it taken out and thrown away ~ i always feel like a 'killer' even if it is 'just' a plant, but we will enjoy having the blossoms every June so much.

smiley52
You and your friends do and have done so many interesting things.   I have to say, the beef roll up with the fruit paste sounds "interesting".  I have had some things like that with dates or similar things, but it's hard to imagine bananas ~ or what they would taste like when cooked WITH beef.    Your Pineapple desert (or whatever it was) on the other hand, sounds yummy!

Poor Scott.   Even if he does get another chance to stay in the apartment, it won't be long before Chris blows it again, sad to say.  I feel sorry for her too, though like many of us she is the author of her own miseries.     Never a dull moment, eh?   If they do move, I hope your next neighbors are good!   That's definitely the down side of apartment living.   When you get good neighbors, it's wonderful, but when you don't, you are just too close to them for it not to matter.    Of course you have the same issues with neighbors in separate houses, but at least you have a little more distance.   Sometimes that helps.  Sometimes not.  Anyway, my fingers will be crossed that you get good ones!

Are you still getting Meals on Wheels during the week?   Still enjoying them most of the time??

Have a Happy Day!

I would love to see pictures of your mock orange tree and your flowers when they bloom.  How are your dwarf lilacs doing? Do they bloom when the regular lilacs do?

Scott could not see Chris last night because he was not on the list. (mom had told him she thought you had to have an appt or be on a list)  So he made sure he was on the list for tonight.  Visiting hours are very limited. Thur & Fri nights and Sun afternoon and I think that is it.  Scott is going to start packing but Chris is a pack rat and has that place jam packed with stuff.  Now would be his chance to get rid of stuff but I think he would be afraid to.

I am afraid that the landlord will not be very picky as long as they have the money.  Our old landlord always wanted our input on the people.  We will see.

Meals on wheels is good.  Though neither of us liked today's Liver and onions.  It was too livery tasting.  My mom made the best liver.  Cooking bacon and onions together and the cooking the thinly sliced liver in with them.  It was always delicious.  This was barely ok.  I have had liver in restaurants too and my moms is far better.

Mom saw her personal physician yesterday and she had lots of concerns. She really does not think mom should be at home.  One minute mom is saying she needs to go back to Harbor Haven and the next she is working hard.  But she does nothing much unless my sisters are around.

Nothing else going on around here, No plans for the weekend.

Chat with you tomorrow.

Hugs,

Good Morning.

Good Grief, Charley Brown!   It's supposed to reach 96 degrees today!  Now that's too darned HOT!

I made Jack's birthday card yesterday, or at least the one I'm going to send to be on time for his actual birthday next Friday.  I will still make another along with his gifts to send to Grandma's for the big party.   We want to take the Chrysler out for a spin and we'll mail the card then.  I think we want to go this morning before it gets so hot.

I didn't get a picture of the Mock Orange yesterday.  I dressed so schlubby that I didn't want to go outside and be seen!   LOL

We got notification from the HOA that the landscapers will be trimming bushes next week.   Are you kidding me?   They trimmed our Potentilla last Fall and it still looks pretty good.  They skipped our lilacs and they looked awful until Bill trimmed them for us when they visited.  Now they look fine ~ what are they going to trim?   Then by Fall, everything will look scraggly and out of control again.   Sheesh!

I love Liver and Onions and I absolutely can NOT cook it!  I haven't even tried for years and years.   In my long lost youth, it always used to turn out like old shoe leather!   I think it's because raw it really looks ugly, and cooking it stinks, so I always over cooked it.  I even read suggestions to blanch it and I tried that, but  . . . shoe leather.  LOL   I'm glad most of the meals on wheels are good.

I can understand Scott being afraid to get rid of any of Chris's things.  Actually, I can emphasize with her ~ I wouldn't want someone else coming into my house and getting rid of any of MY things.  I might get hostile too. Ha!    Depending on when she gets out, she might not have time to pack everything up.  Poor Scott!

I can understand the concerns about your mom not being ready to be home ~ or does the Dr think she might never be?  I hate to think of the financial ramifications, or of your being home alone.   

I will play Scarlet O'Hara, and I won't worry about that today.  I'll think about that tomorrow.  ;-)

It hit 97 degrees yesterday!  Today it's only predicted to be in the mid 80's, with a chance of rain tonight.   Summertime!

I was really under the weather yesterday, felt awful, but thankfully today I feel ok.   I made Jack's birthday card to go with the presents he will get at the lake, and not much more.  We'll see what today brings.

New developments on our Neighborhood's Movie Career ~~
First we got an email saying that the PSA (Coloradans Against Auto Theft) will be shot at a different neighbor's house than they originally said.  No explanation offered, but now it's at the home of the HOA President.   This house is on the street in front of and at right angles to our house, so I should be able to watch all the goings on, if I want to stay glued to the window.  (I don't. Ha.)  I talked to Sue who who lives right across the street from the new location, and she and John have agreed to let the Production Company use their garage, driveway and bath room.  They will pay them $100, and promised to clean the bathroom when they leave.  Knowing Sue, refreshments will be served.    

The email said they will be filming between 2PM and 9:30 PM to show time lapse day into night, and that they would try to be as little disruptive as possible and not block the street, but they asked that they'd like to see our neighborhood as quiet as it usually is and we should keep our cars in our driveways or garages. 

A couple of hours later, an irate email from one of the neighbors asking if this was put to an HOA vote and that it seems that just one or two made the decision for the entire community and that ALL the neighbors should have been allowed to vote on it.   Oh, my!  LOL    Of course she is right, just two guys approved the decision, and it does effect the entire little neighborhood, but on the other hand, that's why we have volunteers serving on the HOA so the rest of us DON'T have to attend meetings every day!   It's getting interesting.  

I still have to make Lily's card ~ she'll be One, and I want to make some tags to put ON the wrapped gifts because I do think the cards will go one way and the gifts another ~ ha.  I hope to get the gifts wrapped today and Lily's card made too.   (Hope, being the operative word.)   Then we can get them all wrapped for mailing, weigh the box or boxes, pay the postage online and create a mailing label, which makes an appointment for the Post Office to pick it up on our porch.   How nice is that?   No standing in lines at the Post Office!

It is really hot here, though not as bad as earlier predicted. Had to get Suz over here to close all the windows that Chris had opened up last time she cleaned. It did give us good cross ventilation but going around to close all those windows is so hard on me. Mom just does not think about all the things that she tells others they do not have to do. That just means that I have to and I do not know why she does not realize how hard those things are for me to do. I am ready to scream.

Chris will be in jail for a while. So the landlord gave Scott 30 days instead of 10 to move. He did get help and hauled some furniture off to the dump. May have been some things she broke in her "episode". She has no memory of it and sent Scott to us apologizing. I do feel bad for them. And for us.

So all is not peaches and cream in HOA land. I suppose that sort of complaint is a sort of slap in the face to the two gentlemen that made the decision. I suppose that the changes and additional restrictions are irritating some of the members. I think the donation to the HOA could have been more impressive. Usually shoots have an area of food and drink for staff. It would be interesting to see. The shoot should have offered and area where neighbors could come and view the goings on. Then maybe there would not be so many nay-sayers.

Well, nothing more to speak of.

Chat again tomorrow.

Hugs,

Good Morning.  
We didn't get any rain yesterday, and we're heading for 90 today.

I did get all of the kid's gifts wrapped and Lily and Jack's cards made.  I put tags on each gift, assuming the cards would go one way and the gifts another , but I didn't make a separate card for Vince's Un-Birthday..  We found a box everything will fit in to send to "Grandma and Grandpa" ahead of the party, so now all that remains is to carefully pack them for mailing, print a label and pre-pay for shipping and have our Mail Gal pick it up.

This afternoon I am going to Tea in Boulder with four of the ladies from the Neighborhood (Sue, Roxie, Marie and Mona).  I've only met Mona in a large group before this and not really to talk to.  I'm looking forward to getting to know her, and to spend time with the others.   Mike and I used to go to The Dushanbe TeaHouse for lunch or brunch, but we haven't gone in many years, and never to the actual Tea.  I've linked the site for you to check out if you'd like.

I haven't heard from my friend Judy in Omaha since May 28th, and she hasn't responded to my emails or texts.  I tried to call her, but the call went immediately to her Voice Mail.   I'm really worried, and don't know any other way to try to find out if she is ok.

I really did laugh when we saw the irate letter about the upcoming filming in the 'Hood.   A day later, another neighbor who has served on the Board and on some of the Committees wrote a communal letter in response, thanking her for her concern and acknowledging her good ideas, and then telling us that four people met every day to make decisions effecting the entire Community, in addition to the regular meetings.  I didn't know that, but it doesn't surprise me.  I'm just grateful that Mike and I aren't expected to take a turn ~ or maybe we are expected to, but that's not gonna happen!  We'll keep our criticisms to a minimum ~ lol.   He told the woman who wrote the first letter that she should run for the Board the next time, because her interests and concerns would be much appreciated and beneficial.   In the meantime, he pointed out that the initial letter was sent out 10 or 11 days ago, and that might have been a better time to voice her concern..  So far, no response.  

I think there are two women, maybe more but two that I am very aware of, who do like to stir the pot, it seems to me.  As long as they don't involve me in their stirring, it's fine.   Initially when the Board was being formed and it seemed a bit over-zealous, I did have some things to say, but they seem to have calmed down and are mostly doing things that benefit all of us rather than trying to control all of us and make us conform to THEIR ideas
.   That could change with new Board Members who think they know what's best for all of us.  This is a predominantly Liberal Neighborhood ~ Ha.  
 
I'm glad the Landlord gave Scott more time to clean the apartment out.  It does sound like he isn't going to relent on making them leave ~ sort of good news/bad news.   I hate to think of Scott getting rid of much of Chris' stuff, but finding a place to put it all has to be a challenge for him.   

I wish rather than believe that this time in jail would be a real wake up call and game changer for her.

I'm really sorry your mom tells others not to bother doing things without realizing that those "things" will now fall to you to do, and you aren't in much better shape than she is!   I know if you tried to explain it to her it would just upset her, but you can't keep on doing everything without any help.   smiley74

I hope today is a better day  .. . . .

Show Time!   Today's the day my neighborhood becomes a Star!. 

Should we still take our trash out this afternoon for pick up tomorrow, or should we pretend we have no trash.  Decisions, decisions.  LOL

Watching the news non-stop this morning, but they are of course beginning to repeat since no new information has been learned.   I was shocked to see what had happened when i first turned the TV on, and I haven't had the news off yet.   

We do want to clean the outside entry way to the house, which is definitely overdue.  Maybe we'll have our coffee on the deck this morning and get that done and water the pots.  So far, they are looking good and healthy, though they haven't bloomed yet.   The Mock Orange looked a bit peaked yesterday, could be transplant shock.  I'm pretty sure it is are getting water from the drip line, but of course I can't be positive.   I watered it from the porch just in case.

I hate to admit it, but I did NOT go to tea with the girls.   I had two bad night's sleep and woke feeling awful that morning.  I still planned to go, but stayed in bed rather than getting up and showered first thing.  Mike came in to the bedroom and asked me not to go.  He actually begged me not to go!  I was feeling better by then and fully intended to go and told him so, but he was really insistent that I stay home ~ or as insistent as either of us would be trying to influence the other one.  Of course he is not "in charge" of what I do, but he felt so strongly that I couldn't help but be influenced.   His concern was that it was in Boulder, and if I were sick I wouldn't ask the girls to bring me home, or call him to come and get me.    Ultimately, I called Sue and begged off..  

I don't know what they serve for Tea, but I know they used to have really good lunches and the best ginger bread I've ever had for dessert.   When I talk to Sue, I will find out what they actually served, but I'll bet it was good, and I'll bet everyone had fun..

It seems that a lot of times I will post that we are going to do something, and then we don't.  I am going to have to start saying nothing about our plans, and then just report what we actually did the next day ~ laugh.  This is getting embarrassing.  Ha.

My friend Faye in Ohio is back in the hospital (Cleveland Clinic) and going through some more tough times, and I still haven't learned anything about my friend Judy in Omaha and I'm terribly concerned.  I sent a message to our mutual friend Claudia (who used to be part of Our PSP group) to see if she knows anything, but I haven't heard from her yet.  She is in Arizona, so probably doesn't know anything more than I do unless Judy contacted her.  I'm hopefully she knows someone there in Omaha we could contact.  I sure don't.  

Barb's last dialysis appointment went so much better than the earlier ones.  Maybe it's going to be ok ~ or as ok as having to go to dialysis two or soon three times a week could possibly be.   Tom goes with her and holds her hand when they put the needle in, bless his heart.    He doesn't send flowers or cards, but when the chips are down, he is there for her in all the important ways.

Poor Scott!  I wonder what he and Chris will do when she gets out of jail.  Really hard to imagine living like that.  Of course I have my own issues and I'm just glad alcohol or drug addiction isn't among them!

No theme for the kids presents or cards.  We got Jack a set of Walkie Talkies and a kit to make paper airplanes for his 5th birthday.  (I had to get the same airplane kid for MIKE!  LOL)     We got Lily an Adora Doll geared for a one year old, and a little hat and booties.     We got a plastic Microscope for Vince's UN-Birthday...  The kids will all be together at Grandma and Grandpas by the lake next weekend.

I love hearing all about it and seeing the pictures ~~ I think I am happier NOT being there though.  I'm really getting to OLD for the under Five Crowd in a pack.  LOL

Have a GOOD Day.

Love you.

Good Morning.

I was just watching the news, and Steve Scalise's condition has been downgraded.  It sounds like he is facing several more surgeries, and the risk to his life still exists.   Praying for him, and for the others who were hit and I imagine could possibly have issues for a long time.

Yesterday I did watch the making of the movie a bit.  Mostly it involved people walking around or standing around, and then bringing equipment to set up in the yard ~tripods with reflective sheets and things like that.  Interesting for a while, but not for too long.  ;-)   Mike brought the flag in last night a little after 9PM and he heard them say "Action!" and then "Cut".  

If Mike and I were Sue and John, we'd be exhausted today, just having people in and out of our house all day.  I'm sure they did fine ~ but we sure wouldn't have.  ;-)


My friend Judy is ok!   I contacted Claudia in Arizona to see if she knew anything about Judy, and she hadn't heard from her in about the same length of time as I.   She thought she would contact her daughter and son-in-law who live in Omaha and ask them to go by the house and see if they could find out what is going on, but her husband John suggested she call the Police instead.  He said they could get answers right away, so she did!  They apparently don't call you back when you request a check on someone, but he gave Claudia his name and number and she called him later.   He said Judy was ok.  She got a new phone and she will get in touch with us soon. 

Long story ~ Judy has lived in the same house for decades.  It's a really lovely older home on a large lot in what used to be a lovely neighborhood.  She and her neighbors looked after each other and did things together socially.  Then many years ago Creighton Prep, whose property is next to Judy's back yard, started buying the houses in the neighborhood and making them available to Section 8 people.  The amount they offered Judy she felt wasn't sufficient for her to buy a new home equivilent to hers and hire help packing and moving.  More and more neighbors moved out  and now she is really alone there.   Even most of the Section 8 people have moved out and the houses have been torn down in preparation for whatever else Creighton has in mind to do.    In the meantime, some of the Section 8 people were criminals who did a lot of damage, and because Judy is feisty and doesn't suffer fools, they took particular delight in tormenting her.  While she is out doing her volunteer work, one guy has broken into her house several times and stolen things that really meant something to her, but wouldn't to him ~ and of course some things of 'real' value as well.  She put in a good security system, but it never catches him so the police don't believe her.  There are several reasons why I understand why the police don't, but I do.   It's been a nightmare.    Anyway, that may have something to do with her changing her phone and getting rid of her land line.   I'm not sure why she didn't let us know, but she may be overwhelmed.  I don't know.   In the meantime, I really thought something bad had happened and I still have no way to reach her until she contacts me.    TMI?   Sorry.

That's all the news that is fit to print, and much, much more..

Absolutely nothing going on around here.  Except the hot and humid. Not as hot as originally expected but so much more humid. So humid that even with oxygen on, I have trouble breathing out there. Tues I went for my INR which was exactly the same as last week 2.8, but they still wanted me back in a week to 10 days. We took 10 days. I was happy to discover that my appt with Denise is next week and not yesterday. I so did not want to go out there.

BIG NEWS.  KIRSTIE HAD HER BABY 3 WEEKS EARLY.

BOTH ARE FINE AT THIS POINT.

Hello!

Sorry I'm late.  Shauna was here this morning and just left, and there were several other little issues.  Anyway, the house is clean and things are more or less in order.

Shauna's husband Kenny has gone back to work doing light duty!   That's great news, but he still has many issues to deal with.  With that (flesh eating?) bacteria, I wonder if he won't always have.  My old hair dresser, Sharyl posted on Facebook yesterday that she was back in ICU, this time with heart failure!   She never gives full information, but only little half sentences so I never know what is really going on, other than that she has been in trouble ever since she was diagnosed with diabetes when she was pregnant.   

Except for getting up every hour or hour and a half to go to the bathroom, I slept pretty well last night and feel much better today.   Note to self: Do not drink a big glass of ice tea before bedtime!

My INR has been high the last two times.  No discernable reason.  The only change I have made is to take OTC diuretics because I am retaining fluid.  The nurse said that sometimes causes changes in INR so last time we cut another pill to half (half a pill three times a week).  Yesterday it had gone down from 3.5 the previous time to 3.3.   Then I couldn't transmit my numbers via telephone like I should be able to because they implemented a new and absolutely terrible system.  I always have to go through to Customer Service to report my numbers now,and today I got a dingbat who was incapable of listening even when I said and spelled my first and last names ~ then she repeated it wrong again.  I was ready to scream.  She put me through to the automatic system to reenter my information and again it failed so SHE entered it automatically, and it failed for her.  Maybe she will get it fixed.  This is as irritating and the new finger stick machine was (and sometimes still is).  Anyway she took my number and the system should put them through to my Dr's office.  Until I'm told differently, I'm going to just keep on keeping on and see what happens next time.

Congratulations to Kirstie and her husband and to LouAnn and Bruce and Welcome Mila!!  Great pictures!!!

Yeah, I take water pill with breakfast...I know how it is.

It is good that Shauna's husband is working again. I 

wondered if what he had was that flesh eating virus. I do

 not know enough about it to know if he will always have

 issues from it, but I do know it is a very nasty thing and

 people die from it.

Busy day here. Had the plumber first thing with morning as

 our water healer was not working and Jerry (Suz hubby)

 could not get the pilot light lit. They were here about 45

 min. So we have hot water again. Then the oxygen people

 were here to switch out machines because one of moms new

 one. Then mom's new therapist was here and we were 

getting to know her. Also sister Diane came and helped 

mom take a shower. Suz was here to do laundry. No

privacy today.

Tomorrow is my nephew Jason's Graduation party. Mom does

not want to go but feels to guilty to stay home. I do not. I 

already texted him his gift. There is a football team and 2

 baseball teams invited and a huge family. That is more than

 I can be around. So I will have a couple of hours of me 

time. lol.

Hugs,

'Morning.   Welcome to the weekend.

We have no special plans for today, but tomorrow we start celebrating our 36th anniversary.   How our celebrations have changed over the years.   An anniversary might have meant a trip, large or small, or a dinner at a favorite fancy restaurant, probably plus a special dinner at home.   Now, we are beyond low key, but we are celebrating "us" for three days in a casual at-home fashion.   Steak and Lobster tails on the grill tomorrow night, with an Orange cake that we ordered (surely you didn't think I made it!).   Salmon on the grill tomorrow, and steak on the grill on our actual anniversary on Tuesday.   Instead of our usual gifts for each other, we both chipped in and bought a very special bottle of Scotch, which we will share throughout the year.  We started doing that a couple of years ago, and since we aren't really big drinkers, it works quite well.    I guess kind of boring compared to the "old" days, but somehow just right for us "old" lovers.

Yes ~ lets stay the heck away from any sort of flesh eating bacteria!   I always thought it was isolated and involved exotic locations or events.  Apparently not so!    Sharyl got it from a boil on her leg, Kenny from blisters from his new work boots and his dad from being badly scraped when he was hit by a car!   It's really frightening.

Yesterday was really exhausting for me, though I'm not sure why.  I did sleep well, only a couple of get-ups during the night and I slept until 6:45!  Wow!   Now if I could keep doing that.     I hope you got a good night, too!

Sue  borrowed the die and stamp set I used to make my Santa Christmas cards and hopes to return it on Sunday and pick up some other stamps for another project.   She stands when making her cards and is concerned that she will fall behind when she has her surgery on the 28th and can't stand to make cards for a while, so she wants to get some things done before then.   She will once again have her Christmas cards done, and I am still scratching my head wondering what I am going to do ~ lol.   I have an idea, but I'm not sure it will work and I haven't even assembled the things to see yet.  Maybe I'll just buy a couple of boxes.  lol

She will be in the hospital for two days after her surgery and then I'm not sure how long she will be limited in her activity after that.  I think everyone heals at a different rate.  She and John went to the hospital to see a film on knee replacement surgery and were told there would be quite a lot of pain, but she would have good drugs.   She's still "looking forward to it", if that's the right description, since she hopes to get rid of the progressively worse pain she is in now.

I know Barb was sick when she was in the hospital for hers and stayed a day longer than originally planned, and then she also had a lot of pain during her physical therapy.  I think she still has some pain, but it's so much less than she used to have or than she is having with her other knee that she is also anxious to have her other knee done on this coming Tuesday.

My problem is much worse than theirs!   I can't figure what I can do to help either of them, and I know they would both be here for me if the situation were reversed.    Being from Minnesota, my first thought when anything like this comes up is "The Hot Dish", but I know that their other neighbors and friends will be bringing meals, probably much better than I could make and (1) everyone has food restrictions or strong food preferences these days and that intimidates me and (2) a person only has so much freezer space if they get lots of food brought to the house.    I really hate to "come and visit" because I feel like that makes them entertain me, though of course that one I can play by ear, and come if I think Sue could use some company.   Not so much for Barb because she expects guests to take their shoes off, and I really can't!   

I am going to gather a big bag of mysteries and maybe make some cookies to take to Sue before the surgery so she will have them available to read when she wants something.   We enjoy some of the same authors, though she doesn't restrict herself to the mystery like I do.   I can supply her mystery fix with hopefully new to her authors.

Barb's reading is much more spiritual and far beyond things that I am reading, so I wouldn't even attempt that.  

You can see, my problem is MUCH worse than theirs!  smiley121

Wow, you really did have a busy and full day!  Does that tire you out like it does me?   I am such a hermit!

Congratulations Jason!  I understand why you want to go and feel that you should ~~~ and why you choose not to!   In a big crowd, you make your appearance but then you are lost in the crowd and the noise and hub bub can be overwhelming.  I'm glad you are choosing not to go.

Is your mom going to try to go?   I would think it would be hard on her.

Anyway, enjoy your "You" time!!

Hugs
