I never did get to bed, I am now up for 39 hours without sleeping.  I was up till 5 to help mom get ready.  Glad I was as Joanne did not show til 5:45 and they were leaving at 6.  Diane showed shortly after that and LaVerne, the leader of moms TOPS group showed up just before 6 and away they went.  Shortly after I got a 2nd wind and then the day just got busy.
Mom had to go up on stage several times, but there was always someone to help her.  She was over dressed, but I do not care.  She was every bit the queen and she looked beautiful.  It is mom that makes covers for her cane...Suz just picked up the material, I guess I did not word that well.  Mom got awards for her KOPS graduation, including wearing a cap and gown.  She got a Century Club award for loosing over 100 lbs and being a chapter Queen and the the big State Queen!  So tonight's post is pictures.  And then I am off to bed.

Isn't she beautiful?

These photo's make her look heavier than she is.  
See her blinged out cane?



Mom and LaVerne, her TOPS group leader.  
Mom has been leader many times over the years.

Well, that's it for me.  I am off to lala land.

Good Morning.   Happy May Day!

So for May Day this year, we woke to another inch of so of snow deposited last night.     I guess ya hafta laugh.   Harder to laugh at how slow Aimoo is, or the missing smilies or . . . .  (sigh)

We did very little yesterday, and don't plan to do much more today.   Tomorrow morning Matt is coming to see about moving that electric floor plug and hanging the ladder that is now on the driver's side of the Lincoln on the wall on the passenger side of the Chrysler.  I'm sure he can take care of the ladder, and we'll hafta see about the plug.   Anyway, I may be on late tomorrow, but with a much better excuse.  

It's 34 here now, heading for a "high" of 43.  Snowing lightly now, but heading toward rain for the rest of the day.

As always your May skin and Sign In page are purrrfect.  Thank you so much!!

Oh my gosh ~ you're going to make yourself sick going without sleep for so long.  Please don't do that!

Oh, your mom looked beautiful!  I knew she would!   The dress is beautiful, and she is too.    She wasn't overdressed at all.  She was dressed as befits a queen.   I did think you meant Suz made the cane covers for her.  I think it's wonderful and so clever that she makes them for various occasions.  I've never seen that done before, and I love it!

I'm overusing the word "love", but I really do love all of the pictures, and I thank you for sharing them!  What a great picture with Diane and Joanne and your mom.   It's so rare to get everyone looking good at the same time!     I just wish you could have been with them, but getting to see the pictures and hear all about it, and see how happy she must have been is almost as good.  

Oh!   And you did all this and made me a new Mother's Day tag too!   I love it ~~ thanks so much!

Now Get to Bed!!

I did not get to bed to 3am.  I slept till 11am.  I did not hear my mom fall in the kitchen and call for me at 6:30am.  She tried to scoot to the back door but she could not reach the lock on the door.  She was going to use the stairs to stand up.  So then she scooted, worked her way to the front door, going right past my door....she opened the door and was going to go to the steps but could hear Chris and Scott talking so she called them and they got her up and back in the house.  I found out when she got home from church at 11:30.  I feel awful, but at the same time she makes me so angry.  She went past my door to go into the living room.  I said why did you know throw something at my door or scoot over and pound on it?  Would have saved her 20 ft or more of scooting.  I asked her the same the last time she fell and I could not hear her calling me.  She just says I don't know.  Thank God she is not hurt, only bruised.  I do not know what to do to make it so I hear her.  My door is closed, but I and she want it that way.  She does not like the smell of my powder and my room smells like it.  We have had a really low key day and mom has napped a lot.  She was so tired after yesterday and I am sure it had something to do with the fall.  She said she went to turn and caught her foot on her walker.
I did not do a new skin, lol.  I only changed wording on the header.  I just ran out of time.
I have my INR on Wed and am hoping it is good so that we can go to every 5 weeks. So I better eat some greens, lol, since I seem to run high.
Nothing else going on here. So, as always, keep your snow to yourself please!
Chat with you tomorrow.
XOXOXO

Better late than never, eh?

 First this morning I got an online charge that I had to dispute and by the time I got that taken care of I needed to get dressed and ready for Matt.  He came around 9:30 and just left at 12:30.   I thought he would put the ladder up and just look at the electrical outlet to see if it could be done.  Instead, he went ahead and did all the work except for patching the small piece of carpet where the outlet used to live.  He will have his carpet guy "Caesar" do that, probably on Thursday.  Otherwise, everything looks great ~~ and why didn't I do this 5 years ago?!?!    He turned off the electricity while he worked on it, and that cut off our Wireless connection, so I couldn't get back on line until he was done.

He also got the ladder put up on the wall on the opposite side of the garage, so Mike will have very easy access to the driver's side of the Lincoln now, and it won't hinder my access to the passenger side of the Chrysler.   Both Mike and I are more than happy ~ at least until we get the bill.  ;-)   

This is National Hamburger month at Red Robin, or so Mike tells me, so were going there tonight for him to get a burger at half price, and for me to get a Chrispy Chicken Salad.  I can probably have that for tomorrow night too.  We may not go, though.  Mike isn't feeling great.  We'll have to see how he feels in an hour or two.

It's currently 55, heading for 57 (lol)  Really beautiful sunny day out, though when I went out for a few minutes, it was a bit 'nippy'.

OhMyGosh, I TOLD you to get to bed early!   I'm so sorry your mom took a fall, AND that you didn't hear her so you could help her.  Thank goodness for Chris and Scott.   I was thinking as I read "Why did she just scoot past Lou Ann's door rather than banging for help"?   I see it's an ongoing problem.  If either Mike or I fall, that's about the only way we can get up, too ~ by scooting over to the stairs.   Maybe you couldn't have gotten her up anyway.  I know neither Mike nor I can get the other one up.

I did know you didn't put up a new skin.  I wanted to let you know that it worked and looked good, but I couldn't figure out a way to say that without implying some sort of a criticism that you didn't put up a new one ~~ which was the furthest thing from what I felt.   It really does work.  Like most of the time, I shoulda just kept my mouth shut.  Lol.  One day I MAY learn that.  (Prob'ly not.  Ha)

Good luck with your INR on Wednesday.  I need to take my test on Thursday.  They cut down my dosage because for a while it was WAY too high, and I've been bumping up against too low for the last several times.  I may get drunk the night before, particularly if I do order a salad tonight and have it again tomorrow.  What do you think?  Ha!  


Have a Happy Day!

I had a do nothing day.  Pretty much like every day is.
Tomorrow I pay the bills and those of my own that are in.  I pray I can stretch my budget that far.
I feel that my life is running out of control.  I spend money that I do not have and eat whatever I want.  I have gained weight, my sugars are running high and am having to spend every last cent trying to pay my bills.
I am a wreck and half the time I just do not care.
I am going to talk to Denise about my depression meds.  I do not think they are helping enough.  I also need to make an appt to have my ears checked again and see what can be done to improve my hearing.  My poor hearing isolates me.  My mobility isolates me.  The oxygen isolates me.  My own mind isolates me. I need to gain control of my life and change things.  I need to start  by going to bed since it is 2:14 am.  So I am saying good night and I will be in a better mood tomorrow...I hope.
Love you.

Hello.  Winter is gone and Spring/Summer is here ~ for this week.  

Mike didn't feel well all day yesterday, not really sick, just not "well", so we didn't go out for dinner last night.  He looked like a sick puppy all day yesterday, but today he looks positively perky ~~ thank goodness!  In years past I would feel bad for him if he were sick, but now he scares me.  I know that's silly.  Parkinson's people can get "regular" sick too, and it isn't the harbinger of anything bad.

We have absolutely nothing on our agenda for today ~ or tomorrow.    I have to say, I love that. Then Caesar may (or may not) come on Thursday to restretch the carpet after Matt rolled it back to work on the electrical, and to cover the place where the old plug was.   I LOVE that it has been moved, and kick myself for not questioning whether it could be done five years ago!

I hate that you are feeling so down, though I do understand it.  All of the things you said are true, and causing you to feel isolated.  I have some of the same issues, though not as bad, and I do know that sense of isolation when I attend a neighborhood party or something.  I've largely come to terms with not being able to do all the things I used to or that I thought I would be doing at this point in my life, but every once in a while I get a real 'twinge', and then I throw myself a Poor Baby Party ~ and no one else even comes!  Sad!  (laughing at myself, cuz I can . . . Today)
Anyway, I think I do get what you are feeling and why, and I hate it for you.   I hope today is a MUCH better day!

You can see the outlet under my chair ~ and this is what it looks like up close ~~

     

Matt, with the carpet rolled back working on moving the outlet ~~


First picture shows the original plug on the left next to the rolled back carpet, and the new plug with it's brass 'cap' back by the kitchen wood floor, 
and the second shows the actual 'electrical works' ~~

  

Ladder moved from the floor on the other side of the garage.

.I am in a better frame of mind today.  But only because I did not pay my bills today.  I will have to do it tomorrow, but just could not face it today.  I wish all my bills would be in this early so I know if I have extra to pay on the credit cards.  But I can always add an additional payment if there is, though I doubt it.
I am happy to hear that Mike is feeling better.  Had me worried a bit, what with that passing out episode and then not feeling well.  Keep an eye on him...I know I do not have to tell you that, lol.  You worry more than I do.  And that mean a lot, a lot a lot.
My first thought upon seeing that floor outlet was "why in the hell would they put an outlet way out there?"  Seems very weird to me and it really does surprise me that you both did not say something during the building process.  Though it is hard to picture unless you knew where you were going to place furniture, etc.  I suppose if you wanted to have a lamp and not have the cord run across a walkway, it is just hard to say.  Nope, the more I look at it, it just seems to be in a really weird place.
Thank you for understanding my pity party.  Sometimes ya just need to let it all out to help get beyond it. 
Chat with you tomorrow.

 Good Morning.

I'm glad that you are feeling better today.   I am so depressed about yesterday's election I could cry.  When we started out with 17 candidates, at least 12 or 13 of them who seemed to be really good people who could turn things around if elected, I felt hopeful, excited even.  Sadly for me, those of you who have voted to"Fundamentally Change" America have won.   Now I have abandoned all hope, and all I can do is continue to watch our once great country die, without being able to do a thing to help.   On the positive side, this will be my last "political post".  I'm through.  All of my hope is gone.

Another beautiful day here, heading for a high of 77.  The Lawn crew is mowing the lawns in the neighborhood as we speak ~ or at least trimming the edges prior to mowing.  Our usual day is Friday, so I don't know what this means for ongoing service.  I do know that our Pampas Grass should have already been trimmed ~ it looks awful.  The new grass is growing while the old dead grass is still there.  Grrr.

Mike cut out one of his BP pills (actually cut one in half for both morning and night).  He has been taking his BP to make sure it doesn't go too high, but yesterday it was 70/47!   Good grief, no wonder he feels so punk!   Actually, yesterday he felt pretty good, which was surprising given that very low BP!   Parkinson's sucks.   For that matter, so does TM.

I did ask why they wanted to put the electrical outlet in the floor and our Realtor (the builder's wife) assured me that we would need it, or we would have to have cords from the walls all across the back between the kitchen and the living room area in order to have a reading lamp there, or the phone or whatever.  There is no wall between the 'living room' and the kitchen.   I was unsure, but figured she knew what she was talking about.   I don't know why they put it so far out into the living space, but we were dealing with so many issues building, and as you say until we were in and placed the furniture, we couldn't really tell what it would look like.

I more than understand your "pity party".  Sometimes if you don't express it, you will explode!  I know the problem still exists and when you start to pay the bills you may hit the skids again.  Please know you can say anything to me about the things that hurt you.    Right this minute I feel like I'm under attack on so many levels I couldn't even begin to express them all.   I know weight fluctuates, but yesterday I gained .8 of a pound.  So silly to be upset by that because of course I KNOW it isn't a problem, but it was just the feather on top of the pile of rocks on my head ~ one thing too many.     

Thank you for the pretty tag!

Have a good one!

WELL, THE ANTICOAG APPT DID NOT GO AS I HAD HOPED FOR. I AM TOO HIGH AT 3.5.  DENISE HAD INCREASED MY FENOFIBRATE AND SINCE I WAS ALREADY ON IT I DID NOT CALL AND INFORM THEM. THE NEW DOSE IS 3X AS MUCH AS I HAD BEEN ON AND IT DEFINITELY EFFECTS THE WARFARIN. SO LOWERED MY DOSE AND BACK IN 2 WEEKS. BOO! THE TECH I HAD WAS ROUGH,,,THE PRICKED MY FINGERS X2 AND BOTH HURT LIKE HELL.  BOTH THOSE FINGERS ARE NOW BRUISED,  AND NEITHER WANTED TO STOP BLEEDING.  I DID MY BLOOD SEVERAL TIMES TODAY AND GAVE MYSELF INSULIN SHOTS. NOT ONE OF THOSE POKES BLED LIKE THOSE. INFACT SHE HAD TO DO IT OVER BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE HAD TOO MUCH BLOOD,

I AM WITH MIKE.  I HAD BEEN ON 2 DIFFERENT BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS, BUT FOR OTHER REASONS AND MY BLOOD PRESSURE WAS MOSTLY BOTH NUMBERS UNDER 100. ALSO MY DIAGNOSIS LIST SAID I HAD HYPERTENSION AND I NEVER HAVE,  I THOUGHT DENISE TOOK IT OFF BUT IT IS STILL THERE.  NOW MY BLOOD PRESSURES ARE NORMAL.  BUT MY HEART RATE CONTINUES TO BE TOO HIGH.  ONE OF THESE DAYS THEY WILL BE SENDING ME TO CARDIOLOGIST.  DR. HATAHET IS WORRIED ABOUT IT. I DO NOT WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT.  I HAVE ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH.

I READ BARB'S UPDATE. THAT LITTLE BOY WITH THE BOT FLIES LARVA IN HIS ARM WAS JUST LIKE STUFF I HAVE SEEN ON "MONSTERS INSIDE ME". HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED THAT SHOW. REALLY CREEPY STUFF ATTACKING PEOPLE FROM WITHIN. ALSO SAW SOMETHING SIMILAR ON UNTOLD STORIES OF THE ER. IN ONE OF THE MONSTER ONES YOU COULD ACTUALLY SEE A WORM IN A PERSONS EYE. EWWWW.

I ACTUALLY SCREAMED WHEN I HEARD THE NEWS ABOUT CRUZ SUSPENDING HIS CANDIDACY AT THIS TIME. I AM VERY SURE THAT LIFE AS WE KNEW IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. AND TRUMP TELLING SANDERS THAT HE SHOULD RUN INDEPENDENT. WE ALL KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN THEN. THE SAME AS IF TRUMP HAD RUN INDEPENDENT. IT ALL MAKES ME SICK. WE NEED A MIRACLE. I AM GOING TO BED NOW         AND WILL PROBABLY HAVE A NIGHTMARE.               CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW MY FRIEND.        XOXOXO

Hello!   

In the "It could always be worse" Department, for the last three days, I have been the only one who has been able to post in the other group!   This is the third time we've had this happen.  Prior to the first time, when we were all having so much trouble on Forum1, I created a back up group on Forum4, just in case.  It only has a fraction of the borders and things saved, and of course is not a Diamond Membership, but it has been fortunate, because that's where we go when the others can't post.   Of course I've reported it, but you can imagine how long it takes for Aimoo's so called Techs to actually fix something that is wrong in an individual forum.  All they can do when the whole system is down is "Reset the Servers".   Did I mention that my life is filled with "Anything that Can go Wrong, It Will"?

Ah, but it's another beautiful day in the neighborhood ~ heading for the low 80s!    I HOPE we hear from Matt that Caesar is coming to stretch and fill the carpet today.  My "hope" is waning for almost any good thing to happen, but I try to retain at least some hope...

I need to do my blood test today too.  I will as soon as I finish posting.   I'm sorry your numbers are so high and you can't go 5 weeks.  Darn it.  I'm also sorry she hurt you.   I have bruised my own fingers a couple of times, so I know how sore it makes them.

Mike has a tendency toward HypOtension, which is kind of strange when you consider his BP was in the 200/100 range in the Dr's office when we first started treating it.   Actually, mine was too ~ Actual High BP plus serious White Coat Syndrome.    Now well controlled, of course.  

I know the things that Barb experiences when she is in the mission field are beyond imagining.  I haven't watched those shows, but if I had I suspect I would still be shocked (and maybe loose my lunch) if I experienced them face to face.    Over and over, she puts into perspective the terrible burdens I face in my life, and helps me to laugh at myself.  I seriously do feel overwhelmed sometimes ~ until I realize what others are going through.  The reality checks don't heal me, but they do help put things into perspective for me.  Certainly it doesn't have to be as bad as the cases Barb deals with.  I get the same reality check just listening to some of the things some of my neighbors or online friends are experiencing.  I really do need those reality checks!  I often am convinced that I am the most picked upon person on the planet and the Universe hates me.  Ha!

My decision to refrain from ever talking about anything political ever again may be harder than I thought it would be.  I can't seem to find my 'Numb Button'.  I'll keep looking.

Love my new tag!  Thank you!

HELLO. NOT FEELING THE BEST SO WILL SEE HOW IT GOES. YOU SEEM TO HAVE FAR WORSE ISSUES WITH YOU OTHER GROUP/SERVER THAN WE DO HERE. LATELY I WOULD SAY THAT OURS IS JUST TOO DAMN SLOW.  KNOCK ON WOOD, I AM NOT ASKING FOR MORE TROUBLE.

I HOPE YOU GOT YOU RUG STRETCHED TODAY AND PATCHED, I ASSUME HE DOES THAT TOO, LOL. IT MUST BE AWKWARD HAVING YOUR CARPET LOOSE. DOES HE JUST DO THE AREA, OR DOES HE HAVE TO DO THE WHOLE SIDE AGAIN?

I WILL MAKE A REAL AND SINCERE EFFORT TO NOT TALK POLITICS HERE SO THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO. MY LIPS AND FINGERS ARE SEALED.

SPEAKING OF MY FINGERS, I CAN STILL SEE THE HOLES IN THE 2 FINGERS SHE DID MY INR FROM. I CANNOT EVEN SEE WHERE I CHECKED MY BLOOD TWICE TODAY. SHE IS A BIT HEAVY HANDED AND I HOPE SOMEONE TELLS HER, SO THAT SHE LEARNS TO BE GENTLER. SUZ SAW MY FINGERS WHILE WE WERE THERE AND SAID OUTLOUD...I HAVE NEVER SEEN YOUR FINGERS BRUISE LIKE THAT. SO MAYBE SHE WILL GET THE HINT. MAYBE THEY HAVE LARGER NEEDLE LANCETS THAN THEY USED TO. I HAVE NEVER HAD THEM BLEED SO MUCH BEFORE EITHER AND THE ONES I DID THAT DAY DID NOT BLEED THAT MUCH.

ACTUALLY, I FIND THE WHOLE MAGGOTS UNDER THE SKIN THING FASCINATING AND HAVE WATCHED SOME ON YOUTUBE. SO THAT WOULD ONLY FREAK ME OUT IF IT WERE ON ME, LOL. BUT THE BREAST CANCER THAT IS EATING AWAY THE BREAST WOULD TOTALLY FREAK ME OUT. I THINK I SHOULD HAVE BEEN A DERMATOLOGIST.

AIMOO NEVER EVEN ANSWERED MY LAST 2 NOTES TO THEM. I FIGURED BECAUSE WE ARE NOT A DIAMOND GROUP AND I AM NOT THE GROUP OWNER. OH WELL, WE WILL GO ON AS LONG AS THEY LET US. THERE ARE RUMORS THAT YAHOO IS SELLING OUT IT'S GROUPS AND SO THEY ARE ALL TALKING ABOUT HAVING TO GO TO FORUMS. IF THIS HAPPENS, 2 OF MY GROUPS WILL JUST CLOSE. BUT I WILL KEEP MY CREATION GROUP OPEN BY MOVING IT TO AIMOO AND HOPE THAT IS NOT A MISTAKE. YAHOO OR YAHELL WILL DO WHAT IT WILL DO, NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK OR SAY OR DO.

CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW.

XOXOXO

Good Afternoon.  Better late than never?

I woke up at 4 AM and couldn't get back to sleep.  Finally got up with a screaming headache.  This last week has been just awful ~~ nothing 'big' or worth complaining about, but every little thing I touched turned to poop.  I felt like i was being nibbled to death by the ducks ~ and I'm pretty sure when the ducks get at you, you go insane before they kill and eat you.   
Maybe next week will be better.

Caesar didn't come to work on the carpet.  I called Matt yesterday to ask when he was coming (hint, hint) and he said Friday or Saturday  (maybe).  I told him ~ again ~ not Friday morning, and he said he would call me with the time.  So far, no word.  I also told him that if they came after Shauna cleaned and got everything dirty, I would come after them with a switch.  I think he knows I'm not kidding. (lol)

I have tried to make things better.   Because Mike is so good to me, I surprised him with a box of chocolate covered graham crackers early in the week, and they were the best I've ever tasted.  I just had a couple of corners, but they were mmmm, mmmm good!   He loved them.

Then, because neither of us is a mother or has a mother, I decided we didn't need to be left out of the fun of celebrating Mother's Day, so I treated both of us to a box of the biggest, most lucious strawberries you ever saw, with both chocolate fudge and Devon cream dipping sauces.


Why stop there?   I know Katie and Bryan are feeling bad about the baby, and this weekend may be hard with both Mother's Day and Christina's shower, soooo ~

It was just delivered.  I know it's silly, but it was as close as I could come to a virtual hug.

 Shauna came and did her usual good job but now between my bad night and her hard work, I'm pooped!

I've told you that our sprinkler system was broken, and periodically I've seen the Landscaping guys working on it.  Yesterday a different crew came and worked on it, and then Bill (the HOA guy) told us it was fixed.  YAY!  
This morning when Shauna came, she told us that one of the sprinkler heads was leaking.   Aarrgghh.  (Did I mention I've had a horrid week?)

Hope you feel better!!

I am feeling fine.  Something to look forward to...getting together with Nan and Louann next Wed and doing crafts and watching Mr. Selfridge.  I cannot wait.  Nan is bringing something for supper and Louann is going to make a salad and I am going to make cookies since I have the ingredients for that.  Cinnamon chip cookies.  I love them and found cinnamon chips on Amazon but have not made them yet.

We are going out to Joanne's for Mother's Day.  Having Pump & Pantry Chicken and wedges and whatever Joanne decides to do for the rest. She will not let mom and I do or bring anything. Oh well, that is alright by me, haha.

Because of the drunken idiots that live in the little apt. we are now on opposite Fridays for cleaning.  I'll trade you Shauna for Chris.  They were fighting till almost 4 in the morning.  I could not hear her words but I did hear Scott tell her to Shut the F*** up more than once.  They were both really drunk, I hope that was not my fault as Chris borrowed $10.00 from me last night and said they would pay me back today out of Scott's check today.  It did not happen.  Since she was well on her way to drunk when she borrowed it, she probably does not remember.  But I will remind her tomorrow.

I am so sorry that you have had a week from hell.  Why is it always that when things are not going well, everything else follows suit?  Maybe it is Murphy's Law. Things have got to get better and I would say those strawberries are a good start for better times ahead.  Keeping fingers crossed that the carpet gets stretched tomorrow.  I think your headache was brought on by stress!  I am personally going to come over and beat those ducks to death.  Well, maybe I will just crate them up and release them far far away in another galaxy.  Ducks can be cute as long as they're not nibbling.

I love what you did for Katie and Bryan.  It is so sweet of you and I am sure they will love it.  I agree that Mother's Day will be hard on them.  Reid and Tricia announced their pregnancy on FB today.  Rissa and Matt have not and they are due first.  Riss said they will do it in a cute way for announcing the sex of the baby. Not sure when that appt was to be.

Well, time to move along.  I want to do some reading before going to sleep. Chat with you tomorrow, which will be a much better day for you.
XOXOXO

Good Morning!    

On a somewhat miraculous note ~ the gals have started being able to post in the other group again. I don't know what, if anything, Aimoo did, but for now at least, it's working!

It has been 81 degrees for the last two days, but today it's going to be 20 degrees cooler, and with a 30% chance of rain.  That's ok, too.  Definitely gloomy out there, and Denver is disappearing into the mist again.

We are thinking about adopting a 10 year old boy.  Shocked?   Me, too!  We'll have to wait and see.

 Shauna came and restored our home to 'Show Room' status.  It's still that way as we speak ~ 12 hours later!  LOL    She also turned the outside water on for us and attached the hose from the front porch so we can water plants from there.  Our sprinkler system is turned off again until the Landscapers can come back and fix the leak, and our lawn is burning out.   I hope it does rain all weekend!

I do love you little sister, but no way in H. are you getting my Shauna!  LOL    You and your mom need to quit enabling those two, Chris and Scott!   I know you feel sorry for them and want to help, but they need to be forced to help themselves.  No workee, no payee.

Your guess is as good as mine about the carpet repair.  It was supposed to have been done Thursday.  Then when I called he said Friday or Saturday.  Haven't heard a thing.  Annoying!   So far Shogun hasn't bothered it.  The hole is subtle because it's just the round circle where the brass plate was and the carpet pad is beneath it, so maybe he doesn't notice it.  The rest of the carpet is loose, but it is down and doesn't really show.  I just called Matt again and left a voice mail for him. . ..   Mike is of the opinion we should just wait for Matt to contact us.  I am of the opinion that "out of sight, out of mind."  I intend to let him hear my voice every day until the job is done.

Ooh, Cinnamon Chip Cookies sound yummy. I've never had them.  I'm so glad you are feeling better and have something fun to look forward to.  What kind of crafts will you be doing?

Pump and Pantry Chicken is a new one to me, too, but I'll bet it's delish!

Thank you ~ I need all the help I can get to round up and chase those blankedy blank ducks away!   I'm sure it was stress, but I've really been feeling unwell.  Last night I took an aspirin before I went to sleep, and slept well and woke up feeling fine.  Thank God.   My INR on Thursday was 2.0, so the Aspirin might even help my blood (she tells herself ~ lol)
