Good Morning

Yesterday afternoon it rained ~ buckets!  Then it cleared off and was pretty, but definitely cool.   Heading for 75 today

I hadn't slept well the night before so I kept falling asleep watching TV.  In between, I played with the Stampin Up stuff a bit.  I bought a little folding table 4' x 2' that folds into a 2' square, and temporarly converted the Morning Room into a craft room.  Of course I had to bring the things I wanted to use from the Library, and take them back.  It would probably be better to temporarily convert the Library into a Craft Room, but then I couldn't also watch TV.  Ah, the challenges of my life.  LOL

I did sleep well last night, and then Mike brought me coffee in bed, so I decided to stay here and enjoy it and visit with you before getting up and dressed for the day.

I hope you had tons of fun with your friends!

Thanks for your border, it looks great with the new tag.

I checked out that video. It is interesting, and I could see where it could be cool, but it is not for me. I did not get excited about it. So that's a big NO!!  I will check in on Stampin Up. It is so cool that they have video's now.  I have looked up how to do crochet stitches on YouTube. You can find anything there, lol.  I cannot live without Google and YouTube.

You must have wrote your post before you saw my facebook message. I was bummed but understood that Louann needed to help Kirstie out with Liam. Wed. Louann is coming over to cut mom's hair on her way to her eye appt.  Thur. I have my INR at 3:45.  Mom is being picked up at 4:15 to go to Jason's game.  Then Carol and Gloria will arrive around 5:30ish.  Mom will eat at the ballpark and we are doing Gilles which is a drive in restaurant known for their custard.  They have been in business for 60 yrs. 

It has been hot here.  High 70's and 80's.  Mom's tomato plants are all planted in the garden.  Now the forecast is for varying possibilities of rain for the next week.  Every day has a percentage.  I saw that it rained my Kirstie today and they live on the far south end of the city and we are the north end.  It did not rain here.

I wish it was June 7th and my surgery was all over with. There are so many instructions preop that I am afraid I will miss something and screw it all up. If I have to wear the patch home from surgery I will be blind.  I am a bit fearful about something going wrong.  It is my only eye.  He cannot give me better vision because of astigmatism that I have. But even having a clear lens and hopefully a smoother surface on my eye will help me to see better.  And it could help me some with the brightness bothering my vision.  The glare can be caused by the cataract.

Actually I am more afraid of seeing Denise for the pre op and having her see how much weight I have gained.  Excuse the sow...the hogs around the corner.  I do not know what that means, it is something my mom says. Somehow it seems appropriate.

Chat with you tomorrow my friend.

XOXOXO

Good Morning.   

I'm a bit late again.  I got my shower, had breakfast and then moved everything I had in that "Stampin Up" cabinet in the library into the Morning room so Mike can add another shelf for me.  You would laugh at all the grunting and groaning I did just moving two shelves worth of stuff.  Bending and reaching causes me pain, and bending and reaching and lifting paper causes a lot of pain.  Who would think that a stack or two of paper would be so darned HEAVY!  Ha!  I wanted to get my stuff out of the way so he could work on it whenever he wanted to rather than waiting for me.  Then we are going to move his Laser Disc collection and some other things over to the next cupboard so I can take over the one he is currently using, which is next to the one I have now.  I told him that once he has his shelf where he wants it, I will move everything for him.  I maybe shouldn't have said that.  Bending and reaching and lifting is killer for me.  I'll do it very slowly.  One disc and then sit and rest, another disc and ~~ LOL. 

Barbara is leaving for Guatemala on Friday, and I will start a new "Missionary Surgeon" thread ~ or maybe add to the old one.  It makes me tired just thinking of it!

The last two days, we have had a 10% chance of rain, and it's poured buckets both days.  Yesterday, it HAILED hard, but thankfully only for maybe 10 minutes.  Still enough to do some damage.  I thought it was going to strip all of the trees ~ you should see all the leaves on the grass!  Our new plants didn't fare well, but there are lots of new buds, so it will be fine ultimately.  I think the lilacs took a beating too.   I hate it, but it could have been worse.

You are right.  I posted here before going to Facebook yesterday so I didn't see your message.  I'm sorry you couldn't go. :-(

Tomorrow you definitely have a full day, and I hope it will be a FUN day!

That border does look great with MY new tag!  Thank you so much!   I love it!

I can imagine how much you wish you were past the surgery.  I know it will go well, but I know I would worry too.  I will need cataract surgery, and I already worry about it ~ ha.  Yours is more worrisome.   Are you going to have clear glass rather than corrective lenses put in?   That's what I would like to do, but I'm not sure my eye Dr will go along with that when the time comes.  I have never had near vision correction that didn't make it worse, and I'd have no problem at all wearing glasses to drive or see distance.  I just want my own un-fogged vision back!   Wouldn't the lens help with your astigmatism?  I know when Mike was wearing contacts, it did help him, and his vision stayed 'corrected' when he took them out, for a while at least.

I 'hear' you about your next visit with Denise.  After my Echo, I went off diet for two days, not really all that bad but definitely off.  Now I'm back to low carb eating, but I feel like a blimp and I haven't had the courage to get back on the scale.   I can't stand to see that 200+ number again ~ but I suspect I will. :-(

I know you will feel better about everything once you get past the surgery ~~ then you can hold my hand for when my time comes.

Once again, thanks for the border. Looks pretty good with this new tag. This challenge was for us to choose a quote of Mae West's and make a tag. I did not realize she said so many great things. She was a fabulous comedienne.

We had a thunderstorm this evening. So moms garden got watered...thank you God. I hope that your dahlia's and lilac's were not harmed too much by the hail. That would really suck.

 Chris and Scott are being so good because she is babysitting for her granddaughter who is about 3 I think. But now I wonder if she will clean tomorrow like she is supposed to. We asked her last week to do it a day early since the ladies are coming over and she okayed that. Now I fear we will be welcoming them into a dirty house.

You should look at the wheeled craft carriers.  I actually started with a plastic carrier that had several compartments and levels and I would have my things in there to take along to Nan's. It was like a large caboodle. Much bigger and much deeper than this one.

 Then it got to be too much for that and I got a wheeled carrier. Something like this.

This was so I could take things to Nan's or to Louann's. Then besides both of these I also have stacking drawers full of things. I really have a ridiculous amount of stuff but it is old...pre 2007.  Card stock paper is much heavier than than regular paper. You really could use a wheeled cart. You could even use a small wheeled suitcase. Just an idea. It is nice that Mike is willing to move for you, lol. My dream would be to have a craft room. That is what takes up most of my bedroom. 2 bookcases full of craft supplies and 5 big bins of yarn and several boxes and a suitcase full of beading supplies. I would love a room that everything could be in and be easily accessible. I have a large craft table...well larger than yours and I would leave it up all the time. I had it up here in the past. I used it when I was making my nephews stockings and so many other projects. I used to drag it into my room when someone was coming over so that I did not have to put everything away. I can dream can't I? lol

You might as well continue to us the same post that you have going for Barb updates.  That would work well. I will be keeping her in my prayers.  She is the Faithful Warrior Surgeon. 

I am sure I will feel better and relax when the surgery is all done. I have so many concerns but I knew if I put it off it would never happen. Pray also that I do not get a cold or anything that would escalate my cough before then.

So, I may not be in tomorrow with so much going on. I will try.

XOXOXO

Good Morning 

OhMyGosh, have you seen the video of the tornadoes in Kansas?  Terrible!  I watched them on the ground last night, and then this morning you see the terrible aftermath.   I guess I won't complain about a little hail. Those poor people!

Yesterday we planned to get three cabinets in the Library cleaned out and "re-purposed".  When will we learn?  Ha!   Neither Mike nor I really accept that we can't do the things we used to do with ease, and that everything takes us three or four times longer than it should.  Mike has always been so strong and able to do things, and I wasn't always such a mess.  Anyway, we did get one cupboard up and running for my Stamping Up stuff.  The other two still need to be done, but we can wait a bit, so it's ok.

I took a picture of some of the cards I've made, and another of my "Craft Room", which consists of one cupboard in the library ~ ha. 

   

There were two other cards, which I've actually sent for birthdays.  The two in the middle of the picture, with the black 'stripe' still don't have Sentiments on them because I haven't decided how to use them yet.  They will probably be birthday cards.

Library shelves ~ top shelf, paper, middle shelf has some tins of finished cards and ready to make cards, then stamps, then on the other side, punches and in the middle a box of "everything else"  (ink, adhesives, etc, etc).   Bottom shelf has the cutting board and scoring board and some Paper Pumpkin kits.   

I told you I bought a fold up table that is 4' x 2' and folds up to 2' x 2'.  I have been setting that up in the Morning Room for now, and lugging the stuff I need from the Library there and back.    That's everything you ever wanted to know ~~ and much, MUCH more!  lol

I still don't admit that I am hooked.  I'm just "interested".  LOL

Oh, I am shocked.  Chris has grandchildren!  I had imagined them in their 20s!  lol    Oh, I hope she did come to clean for you.

When I was doing Toll Painting, I had some easy to transport carriers that I took to class and to other's homes when we did that.    My problem having and transporting things room to room in a carrier is that we have no place to store the carriers!  I swear, this house is BIG ~~ on paper ~~ but I have less space than ever somehow.  Mike confiscated my Walker and he uses it to carry things from room to room.  He finally got his own walker and uses it the same way, and gave mine back so it lives in the garage.  I need to start walking in the neighborhood with it.   Anyway, yesterday when I lugged all my stuff from the Library to the Morning room and back, I did it by piling it on his walker seat.  What's sauce for the gander . .  ;-)

I know you do so many crafty things. Do you ever think about doing cards again?

Good name for our Barb ~ The Faithful Warrior Surgeon.  She told me that some people were put off by some of the pictures she shared because they were so gross.  She said she had been careful not to share the really gross things.  She described women's breasts completely eaten away by cancer ~ hard for us to even imagine the smell, the disfiguration ~ how could they not realize and seek medical help?  And how could I ask that question.  We are so lucky in this country ~~~ so far, and for now.  :-(

Do take very good care of yourself, so you can get the surgery behind you.  When we are a bit closer, I will recruit the gals in the other group to pray for you too.  They "know" you from the tags I use and the beautiful borders I steal for them to use.  ;-)

Fingers crossed for Chris to come and clean today!

Thank you for my beautiful tag!!

I am sneaking in before the ladies get here, but it burned a lot of my time just getting in here.  It just went round and round and round. I was about to give up and decided to try one more time.  Ta da!!!

Chris did not clean. Mom did. When I got up I saw that Chris not only had her granddaughter but she also had Debbie from upstairs grandson. So I said I suppose that means she will not be cleaning today.  Mom was out in the kitchen a long time, or so I thought.  Then I here her in the dining room and she is doing the floor.  I told her not to bother or that I would do it and she said she was just dust mopping it.  Found out she had cleaned the bathroom, wet mopped the kitchen floor and the did the dining room.  OMG! Then Chris pops her head in with her excuses and they were legit and said she would get it done.  Mom told her she did it already but she could vacuum. She really did feel bad.  I will go into that tomorrow when I have more time.  

Just got back from the anticoag and things are not good.  I was 3.6 and that was with a lower dose than I have ever been on.  We went over everything we could think of and nothing could be causing this that we can come up with.  I had even missed a dose.  So we are trying lower yet and back in a week. If not there then we only have 4 days before surgery.  Say a little prayer for my blood to thicken up a little.

Your cards are awesome.  I do wish we could get together and make cards, it would be so much fun.  You are doing an fantastic job, I am impressed.  Your cabinet looks very organized.  It is too bad the shelves do not slide out.  That would be perfect.

Got to run, they will be here any time now.  Chat with you tomorrow.

XOXOXO

Good Morning 

Off to a good start.  I've had breakfast prepared by Chef Michael (corned beef hash and eggs with hollandaise) and I have a load of laundry in the wash.  It looks pretty out of the window, cloudy and calm and Denver looks beautiful.  Supposedly heading for a high in the mid 60s.   Yesterday we had a 90% chance of rain predicted and got none!  The two days before that they predicted 10% chance, and we had gully washers, the second day with HAIL.  Nice that it's so easy to plan your day based on their predictions.  Ha!

The Lawn mowers are mowing the lawn as we speak.  I won't discuss any other plans least I jinx 'em!  

Did you see the post from Aimoo at the top of the screen saying they were going to REPLACE the Server and we would be unable to get in at all for at least two days and "screwed up" (my words, not theirs), for much longer.  Maybe it will help in the long run.  I don't have a lot of confidence, but I hope so.

Well surprise, surprise ~~ Chris did not clean.  (Biting my tongue).  I hope your mom didn't pay her for stopping by to say she was sorry, but I won't be surprised to hear that she did.

Oh, crud ~ your numbers are still way too high.  I will pray for them to come down in time for the surgery so you don't have to reschedule.

Aw, thanks.  I'm glad you think my cards are ok.  I admit, I have been rather pleased with them, but I'm still a bit hesitant to send them, and especially to those of you who really know what you are doing. ;-)

We did get a second cupboard in the library cleaned and reordered with Mike's lasers and some DVDs.  I was convinced that I could do it all myself and surprise him with the finished product.  Well, right.  I couldn't even budge the shelf to raise it.  Mike took pity on me and got the shelf in place and I did move almost all of the lasers and other things into that cupboard.  I just wish I could have done it all, but I'm such a Wuss.   There is one remaining cupboard which has a lot of Mike's "junk" in it (really an assortment of things I think he can either get rid of or put somewhere else).  When he gets that done, I'd like to have the existing shelf moved and another one added to make room for more Stamping Stuff, but I don't need it immediately and I'm not going to bug him about it ~~ for a while.  

I do believe I am doomed to get more and more supplies and have fewer and fewer places to put them.  LOL   I plan to just make a few things ~ I don't have a ton of people I send cards to ~ so I won't need much.  THEN . . I watch a video and see that I have to have ribbons or washi tape or some other strange thing I would never have thought of.  Then I think of making a card for a specific person, and I don't have the right color paper, or ink or . . . Have Mercy!   I'm doomed!  LOL

Have a great time tonight!

Good Morning!

It's heading for the low 70s today.  Yesterday it was really cool.  We went to the grocery store for a few things and got caught in the rain ~ or rather the car did.  It stopped when Mike was outside, thank goodness, but the previously clean Chrysler has been rained upon.

It's Memorial Day Weekend.  I think we should hang the flag outside, though we could easily wait until tomorrow.  We're not planning to go out 'amongst them'.  Steak on the grill with sauteed mushrooms and potato salad, then maybe burgers.   We used to always go to the cemetery where my Grandmother, Aunt and Uncle are buried and tend the roses we planted by their headstone, and then go on to Ft Logan National Cemetery and leave a flower on my brother's grave, but we really can't do the work anymore.  I feel bad about it, but we did it as long as we could, and always felt that what we did for them, we were doing for the others whose graves we couldn't visit.

RAIN, RAIN, RAIN.  WE HAD BETTER BUILD AN ARK!  NICE LITTLE THUNDERSTORM TONIGHT, BUT I AM STILL WAITING FOR A SCARY DOOMER.  HAVE NOT HAD ONE IN A LONG TIME.  COURSE, IF A TORNADO CAME WITH IT, THEN FORGET IT.  IT WAS TERRIBLY HOT AND HUMID HERE YESTERDAY AND A BIT COOLER TODAY.  WE ARE HAVING RECORD HEAT.  HIGH 80'S LAST WEEK WHEN NORMAL TEMP IS AROUND 69.  HOT AND HUMID WITH RAIN IN THE FORECAST DAILY.
YESTERDAY AFTERNOON MOM ASKED ME IF I COULD TURN MY AC ON.  I SAID NO.  YOU TOOK THE SPECIAL EXTENSION CORD TO MY AIR CONDITIONER TO USE OUTSIDE FOR CHRISTMAS.  I HAVE NO CLUE WHERE IT IS.  I CANNOT EVEN GET TO WHERE IT PLUGS IN, JASON UNDID IT FOR CHRISTMAS.  SO I NEED TO CLEAN AND WE NEED TO
FIND THE EXTENSION CORD.
I TOLD YOU STAMPING IS TOTALLY ADDICTING.  AND THE MORE YOU SEE, THE MORE YOU WANT.   IT WOULD BE SO FUN IF WE COULD DO IT TOGETHER.  I WOULD LOVE THAT.  IF I COULD GET MY ROOM CLEANED UP REALLY WELL AND COULD SET UP MY CRAFT TABLE IN THERE, THEN I COULD WORK IN THERE.  I AM STARTING IN THERE TOMORROW, BUT IT IS A BIG JOB AND WITH MY BEING UNABLE TO MOVE MUCH IT IS GOING TO TAKE A WHILE.
NOTHING GOING ON HERE.  DOING NOTHING FOR MEMORIAL DAY.  JOANNE SAID SHE HAD THINGS TO PUT OUT AT THE CEMETERY SO I HOPE SHE DOES.  MOM WAS WORRYING ABOUT THAT.
HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY, I KNOW I AM BLESSED TO HAVE YOU IN MY LIFE.  GOD BLESS YOU.

Good Morning.
  
It looks like a nice Memorial Day weekend, sunny and maybe (?) not rainy (of course that remains to be seen).  I made potato salad yesterday and in the early evening Mike grilled a lovely rib eye steak, and we sat out on the deck with a lovely glass of 2010 Jordan Cab while he did.  We came back inside to eat and as he was carrying the steak back in, he caught his foot on the little step up from the deck and almost went flying.   He scraped his arm on the door frame and it looks like he's been in a serious accident ~ s little bloody toward the wrist, and six inches of blood under the skin that appeared immediately! 

Then overnight he kept hearing the sump pump running so he had me check outside (this was at 6AM!) to see if your sprinkler system was going off in that quadrant that was "broken" before, and sure enough, it was.  It was supposed to water last night, but apparently that area watered ALL night again!  Since we can't walk on that darned rock to turn the water off outside, he had to go downstairs and turn it off from the basement.   We'll have to report it to the HOA again and see if they can get their lawn folks out to fix it.  I can't tell you how we HATE having to rely on others to do these things.  Anyway, now I suppose we won't water at all for a week until they get themselves out to "fix" it, and I have no confidence at all in their ability to do that.    

Oooh, how I hate the high humidity.  That's the only saving grace here ~ if it's hot and we get a lot of rain, we still don't get that awful humidity. I don't envy you!   Serious bummer that you can't turn your AC on!  If even your mom wants it, it must be bad!  

OhMyGosh, how fun it would be to stamp together.  I know I could learn a lot from you.  I am slow, but I wouldn't be embarrassed to be slow with you.  Besides, we'd probably be laughing and visiting so much that neither of us would notice ~ lol.    

 I joined a couple of Facebook Stamping "clubs" and am enjoying seeing the creativity of others and getting some ideas.  The new products won't be released until June 1st, but the Demonstrators already have them and are showing what they are doing with them.   The "old" things are still new to me, so I have a wide world of fun things to look at.   And buy.  (gulp)  LOL   

Spectacular post today!  Thank you for my new tag!

Rain, rain, rain...did I say rain?  At least it was cooler today so we were not miserable.  I am sure the rain is spoiling lots of events that are going on in town.  There is a mini carnival in the Forest Mall parking lot that is not getting much business since the rain has been on and off all the time the last 2 days.

Last night it was warm enough that mom did not want to cook so we ordered out from Pizza Hut.  We love their pasta.  We order one of the Tuscan Chicken Alfredo and one of the Tuscan Meaty Marinara.  I really do not know how they can call is meaty, lol.  Each pan is supposed to serve 2 but we can get 2 meals from each.  We upgraded to cheesy breadsticks and got the Hershey Triple Chocolate Brownies.  I had a coupon code for $10 off a $20 order.  Ours came to $19.98 before tax and delivery charges so we added a 2 liter soda to put us over. So we ended up spending about $16 and we will get 4 meals from it. Which means 4 days of no cooking.  But they are high carb meals.  But I had my salad for lunch so all is good.

I think you could teach me a lot about stamping.  I have only been to one class and what you all are doing now is so different from what I was doing many years ago, lol.  I am slow too.  I have a tendency to be a perfectionist...

Oh poor Mike, but more importantly, did he drop the steak?  Just kidding.  My moms arms are like that.  They are full of bruising everywhere.  Blood pools under her skin.  She also gets skin tears really easily.  In the future tell Mike to ice it right away and it helps stop the bleeding and spreading under the skin.

I cannot believe that your watering system is broke down again.  Are they really be fixing it or are they just patching it or using a quick fix that does not last.  They really need to fix it right this time.  

I think there is a parade tomorrow, not sure if mom is going.  Suz usually likes going and takes her, but she has been acting quite odd lately and really seems to avoid us if she can.  Have asked her what is going on and why they have no money?  But we do not get answers. I told mom that I pray she is not doing anything illegal like when she was selling pot and Jordan's meds.  I made her swear that she never would again and told her that if she did there would be no more chances, we would call the police.  But something is just not right. Oh well, you can lead a horse to water....

Have a wonderful day tomorrow. I know you will be honoring those who died for us to be free.

XOXOXO

Good Morning.    Happy Memorial Day.

It appears that the Prep work for the server replacement has begun.  At least right now we can't get into Forum1.  I don't know how long this site will be good, but then we can still meet in our Facebook Group.  They can't keep us down!

We also had a nice do-nothing day yesterday.  Got a bit of laundry done and finished our "Longmire" Marathon.  Now we have to wait until September to find out what happened to Walt and his girlfriend, to Henry, if Malachi is going to end up back in jail and Henry will get the Red Pony back or end up back in jail himself.  I don't know how I will be able to stand the wait!

It was a pretty day and we planned to grill hamburgers, but shortly before we were going to go out onto the deck, the wind kicked up and then it rained ~ hard!   I brought the flag in and it was already wet so I left it in the laundry room.  I put it back out the first thing this morning.    It's supposed to be heading for 80 with only a slight chance of rain today ~~ but who knows?  lol  Mike just fried the burgers last night and they were delicious anyway.  We'll try to grill again today.  

I'm glad it cooled off for you guys a bit anyway.  I love your delivery meals, they sound wonderful, and I do love having four meals and not having to worry about cooking!  Getting $10 off doesn't hurt either!

I have been off the diet BIG time for the past several days.  I'm gonna hate myself in the morning!  I was up almost three lbs in one day of not low carb eating!   I don't see why you can't lose as fast as you gain, blankedy blank it!   I was absolutely horrid yesterday.  I will be punished.   sigh.

It was weird, but Mike's arm had a 5 or 6 inch path of blood under the skin almost immediately.  I guess he doesn't need to be on Warfarin.  Sheesh.   It still looks awful, but there was no real damage done, thank goodness.

No, very obviously they are just fixing the symptoms of our sprinkler system and not the problem.  It's infuriating.  Nice that it is free to us, but we may reach the point where we call another service and pay to have it fixed and tell the HOA to . . . . do something else.  

I hope there isn't a problem with Suz.  :-(

I imagine there are some new products for stamping now, just because things are always changing.  I suspect between the two of us we could come up with some cute things, and I KNOW we'd have so much fun doing it!  

Thank you for the lovely tag.  That's a really pretty effect!  You do such nice work.

Happy Day!

GOD BLESS ALL THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR US, AND GOD BLESS THEIR FAMILIES FOR THEIR SACRIFICE AND GOD BLESS THIS COUNTRY AND KEEP IT STRONG.

SEEMS WE ARE ALL HAVING THE SAME WEATHER.  IT HAS RAINED SEVERAL TIMES HERE TODAY, BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH AS YESTERDAY.  A LITTLE COOLER TODAY TOO. A LITTLE.

I DID NOT DO A DARN THING I WAS GOING TO DO AND I AM SO SICK OF NOT DOING WHAT I NEED TO.  NO ONE ELSE IS GOING TO DO IT.  AND I WOULD NOT LET THEM.  THAT MESS IS ALL MINE.
 
TOMORROW MY LABS WILL BE ONLINE SO I CAN SEE HOW BAD THEY ARE BEFORE I GO SEE DENISE ON WED.  I AM AFRAID TO GO ON THE SCALE.  I FEEL LIKE A BEACHED WHALE.  I WAS SUPPOSED TO START THE EYELID SCRUBS TODAY AND I JUST CHECKED MY CALENDAR.  SO I WILL BE A DAY LATE WITH THEM, BUT I DO NOT THINK THAT WILL HURT.  I WILL DO ONE TONIGHT AND THAT WAY I ONLY MISS ON SCRUB.

I WOULD GUESS WITH MIKES ARM THAT HE SCRAPED IT AND THE BLOOD FOLLOWED THE PATH OF THE SCRAPE INSTEAD OF POOLING.  MY MOMS ARMS LOOK LIKE SOMEONE BEAT THE HELL OUT OF HER.  THAT IS WHY SHE WANTED LONG SLEEVES ON HER DRESS FOR QUEEN.  IT DID HAVE 3/4 SLEEVES.

I AM GLAD I AM SEEING DENISE ON WED BECAUSE WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT MY DEPRESSION. IT IS A PROBLEM.  I FEEL MYSELF WITHDRAWING INTO MYSELF MORE AND MORE.  I HAVE NO GET UP AND GO.

I KNOW WE WOULD HAVE FUN STAMPING TOGETHER.
THE CHATTER WOULD BE NON-STOP AND THE LAUGHTER WOULD BE LOUD AND OFTEN.  I COULD USE SOME OF THAT NOW.

I AM GOING NOW.  HAVE NOT ADDRESSED MY EMAIL.  I WOULD SKIP IT BUT IT WOULD ONLY BE THAT MUCH WORSE TOMORROW.
XOXOXO

Good Afternoon!    

I tried most of the morning to get in here or the other group and only encountered the little spinning circle.   I gave up, and we ran some errands.   Trying now and getting in, so I thought I would go ahead and update the skin in the other group for June.   It may look familiar to them, but I can't help thinking of June weddings and June brides, and that naturally makes me think of yellow roses (which of course, is what I carried). 

I'm not even sure what we did yesterday, but we (he) did grill burgers.  The wind was kicking up and we decided to eat inside.  

I don't know when the groups will close down and for how long, so I'll make this short and sweet ~ like me.  ;-)


Ut-oh.  The little wheel is spinning again.       The sprinkler system is still broken.  The one small quadrant must have watered all Saturday night, before Mike turned off the water from the basement on Sunday morning.  We reported it again to the HOA, but we are thinking of calling our own service provider and paying for it ourselves.  Who knows how quickly either will be able to get here.  I hope our lawn doesn't dry out before someone does SOMETHiNG!

I love that you can see your numbers online.  I HATE waiting for someone to call me, especially when it's as important as this time is for you!   I haven't gotten on the scale since that first day I went off low carb eating (yiikes!) and I've been much worse since.   I am trying to get back on low carb today ~~ trying being the operative word.  Strawberries in cream this morning and Mike is grilling a steak tonight.  I am going to make some mushrooms to go with it.    Who knows what tomorrow will bring.    Anyway, you have all my empathy about your scale, and my hopes that it isn't nearly as bad as you fear.  Sending good thoughts for your meeting with Denise!

I'm nervous about staying on much longer to post today for fear of losing everything, so I will cut this short.  

I hope I see you here tomorrow.

Love 'n Hugs,

Dorothy

Good Morning!  

 Are we back?   Will we stay back?    We'll have to see how the rest of the week goes.

 Yesterday was horrid.  I got almost no sleep the night before and felt almost sick in the morning.  I didn't even get dressed!  (Hope I didn't shock you.)   By evening I felt better and I slept well last night so I feel fine now.   I got the trash and recycle bins to the curb this morning and I am going to that bracelet making party I told you about this afternoon, but just to observe and visit a bit with my neighbors.     

I see that our date and time stamp is wrong now.  That's been a major and annoying problem in the other group for quite a while now.   I'm posting on 6/2 at 10:19AM and it shows 6/1 at 9:19PM.  Oops.  That may not matter so much here since it's just the two of us and we post at way different times.   In the other group, you often look to see if there is a more recent post ~ and you can't tell, now.     I'm sure there will be many other issues but hopefully they will clear as time goes by.  Not believing, just hoping.  ;-)

See you later, Alligator.

Love 'n Hugs,

Dorothy
