Well, I see we have lost our skin and things are moving extremely 
slow.  So going to keep this simple and quick so I do not lose it.
We had some really horrible storms the last couple days.  But the seemed to just skim past us...we just got lots of rain and wind.  Not
the destructive winds neighboring cities got.  We lucked out.  I was
hoping for a good thunder and lightning show but we did not get that either.  I did have a good time at my friends, for the most part.  But
there were times, I was right in the middle of all of them and felt as if I was alone.  3 different conversations were going on, but I could not hear any of them clearly.  If there had not been so many going on I could have heard the one nearest me, but you cannot tell a room full of people to shut up so that you can here.  I hated that part.  People will start out talking louder to me but they taper off and turn their heads, etc and then I am lost.  I did not take my I-pad as I did not want to be antisocial, but I wished that I had as they were all on their
I-phones while they chatted.  Oh well, for the most part it was lovely.
And since there are only getting to be more of us, I had better get
used to the noise.  Finn made enough noise for 5 kids, lol.  But he was a
joy to watch and interact with.
Pushed my luck here as far as I can I think so saying good night.

Good Morning!    

Wasn't that an unexpected bit of "Fun" from Aimoo yesterday?  After deciding it wasn't "just me", I posted a note in our Facebook site for the other group and then gave up trying to get in to post there.  They were completely down all day.   As you know, I did get a brief post in here before it went down too.

I can't remember what I was going to post yesterday morning.  I'm sure it was very exciting.  Ha.   We went out to lunch yesterday and then ran some errands.  I watched my Soap, which I had taped, visited on the phone for a while with one of our new neighbors who called, and we both spent a fair amount of time online trying to get various things sorted out before bedtime.

Now, I'm still feeling a bit discomboobelated.  lol

Lou Ann, I really am glad you had such a nice time with your friends but I do understand the isolation of not being able to really take part in all the conversations.  I don't have the kind of hearing loss you do, but I'm more and more having issues with separating human voices from all the extraneous noise ~ music, multiple conversations, etc.  Really frustrating.

I really don't understand being on your iPhone texting or talking or Lord Forbid, playing games while you are with other people.  It just seems the height of RUDE to me, but I know everyone does it  We often laugh at other people sitting together in a restaurant, and each of them on their phones.  It looks ridiculous.   I'm just ornery enough that I'd probably say "Hey, if I'm boring you, I'll just leave."

 

Not a lot planned for today ~ lots of little things, but no biggies.  Tomorrow should be a very busy day with Marcela coming in the morning to clean the house AND the Guest Suite to make it ready for Laine.  It looks pretty good, just needs a little vacuuming and dusting and going over the bathroom.  Then later in the morning or early afternoon, the guys should come to put up our outside decorations.   I won't really have to lift a finger, or at least not very many fingers, but i know how tired we BOTH will be when everyone leaves.  Watching others work is exhausting!  

The neighbor who called yesterday is the one who had the lovely dessert party ~ the one where we reached the front door and I promptly fell on my fat fanny right in the doorway.  Lovely first impression.  I am such a class act.

Anyway she called to tell me of a party this Saturday, one of those parties to sell cleaning products that are apparently exceptionally good.  One of our other neighbors is the distributor.  She offered to pick me up so I wouldn't have to walk.  Really sweet of her ~ but I wasn't invited!  I know usually at those parties, the more the merrier, so I said that would be great.  Now the more I've thought about it, the more uncomfortable I've become with the idea of going to a party I wasn't invited to.   I don't take the non-invite personally.  They had one before and I didn't go because I have Marcela and I had just bought a stack of micro fiber cloths from Amazon and didn't think there would be anything I would want to buy.  Now I understand they are fairly remarkable products and everyone loves them, so I'd kind of like to go.  I don't attend all of the parties and activities, so it isn't surprising that I wouldn't be invited to everything.   I'm just uncomfortable inviting myself.   I'm going to contact Sue and decline her invitation to give me a lift.    That appears to be the "big" thing on my agenda for today ~ lol.


Have a Terrific Tuesday!

  Dorothy, she probably only did not invite you because you showed no 
interest last time.  Or it could be just an out and out mistake.  But
you should go with the neighbor.  The invites to that sort of thing
are always bring a friend, the more paying customers the better
 for the hostess and dealer.  Plus you shouldsee the things in
person and how they work.  Otherwise you could ask to see a book
and place an outside order.
Getting colder here.  Right now it is 32° out.  Look, I learned

something new.  I learned how to use the Character Map!!!  I 

suppose it is not new to you, but since you cannot do copyright symbols,

 etc on a laptop it is wonderful to learn about the character map.

My spacing is all off now.  I hate that with a passion.

As far as the group being on there phones....most of the have the

newest I-phones and they were discussing pros and cons, sharing

things, showing pictures, etc.  No one was chatting with someone

or testing anyone that was not there.  They were sharing aps

they had found, etc.  If my I had had my Ipad I would have 

joined in, somewhat anyway.  Even Louann's 80 yo mom has an

I-phone.  I felt out of the loop. lol.  But it did not really bother

me, I am happy to have my I-pad.

Mom told my sister that she was giving them the car for

Christmas and my sister insisted she not do that.  She said if

I do  not get a present from you I will not get one for at all.

Which is not true since she put her whole family into the gift 

exchange.  Their hole issue is finding the money for the 

additional insurance.  So they are stalling.  So mom has decided

that she is going to just give it to them.  Free and tell them that

she is taking the insurance off of it.  They will be on their own.

But putting her whole family in it will cost her about $120.  That

is just the exchange, then there are the gifts for nephews, though

that is down to 4 now as 3 of them are over 18 and out of school.

Last year Jordan was still in the kids, now he is an adult.  Last

year 
they were really hurting.  They did not get in the adult

exchange and 
I paid for all her nephew gifts as my gift to her

for all she does 
for me and I used all the points I had saved up

from MyPoints 
and Amazon to buy to $50 gift certificates for

her to give her boys 
so that they would get something for

Christmas.  
I have not offered anything this year and am not

going to.  I do not know why after filing 
bankruptcy that

they still have no money, but there has to some reason 
for it,

but she just says I don't know when I ask her.  So she is

on her 
own.  I will get her a gift, but that is it.  

Like my mom, we have to 
draw the line somewhere.  Ok, that

was enough venting for the next month or so, lol.

Hump day already tomorrow.  Have a great one.

Hugs,

I'm just buzzing through to let you know that I'm alive and well and will be back when I have more time to visit.

Marcela was here nearly twice as long as usual this morning so she could clean the Guest Suite in preparation for Laine's visit.  Then we did some laundry and waited for the guys to do the outside decorations.  And waited.  And waited.  They're here now.     It's such a discomboobilating day.  I can't concentrate well ennough to write anything coherent, so I won't try right now.

See ya later.

D.

EVER SINCE SUPPER I HAVE BEEN FEELING GAGGY AND 

AM SHUTTING DOWN EARLY TONIGHT.  HAD AN OK DAY.

RECEIVED PART OF MOMS CHRISTMAS PRESENT IN THE

MAIL.  JIGSAW PUZZLES.  I ALSO GOT HER A PUZZLE 

TURNTABLE.  IT IS LIKE A LAZY SUSAN FOR PUZZLES.

PUZZLES ON AND TURNS THE POSTER.  THIS SHOULD

BE MUCH EASIER.  WHAT DID YOU MEAN ABOUT

RE:WELCOME TO NOVEMBER SIGN IN
(Date Posted:11/22/2013 10:25 AM)

Good Morning

What a couple of days!  Marcella was here for about 4 hours on Wednesday, cleaning the guest suite along with the rest of the house.  

Then we waited for the outside decorating crew, who came around 3 and stayed until around 6.  I'm not happy with the results, but at least it's done.  The big wreath over the front door was obviously just thrown in storage and grabbed to put back up without any effort to ensure the lights were evenly distributed, so the aren't.  Too many lights on the left, too few on the right.  I complained so he grudgingly got the ladder back out and moved them a bit, but without taking it down so of course, it didn't do much good.   It wouldn't matter as much if that weren't the center focus of the house.  

Other things weren't done as well as they should have been, and they put the lights on two timers instead of one as they always had before.  We didn't realize that until they left.  We unplugged the one in the garage but couldn't see where the others plugged in until the next morning and had to leave half of the lights on.  I had feared we'd have to walk on the rock along side the house to turn them off, and that isn't easy even if we don't have snow.  Fortunately, we could just unplug them from the deck when we could see them the next morning.   We'll leave the lights off until Thanksgiving.

T.M.I.?  Sorry.  I seem to have a whole lot of make-up talking to do. 

Then when I tried to get online yesterday morning, our wireless connection didn't work, or barely worked.  Incredibly slow and would only let me do a few things before going down.   I won't detail the whole day (you're welcome!) but bottom line was that we didn't get it fixed until early evening, and that after a $70 call to Comcast's "Premier" Help Line.  The first fairly lengthy call to Comcast and a foreign speaker in a distant land resulted in basically "I can't do anything to fix it.  It must be a modem problem.  Good bye."    Impressive.  Mike won't ask to speak to someone in America though he knows he should.  He's not good at being rude or unkind.  Sooo, he worked on it for quite a while on his own and then called back hoping to get someone else.  He did and that person recommended the $70 Premier Help Line and said they can get it fixed for you in half an hour.   Premier person said "I can get this fixed in 15 minutes"

Hmmm.  Sounds like a 'known' problem to me!  We have our own modem rather than renting theirs.  It's actually a much better modem and Mike had "renamed" it and it had worked fine for a long time.  Now suddenly the solution was to change the name back to the default name.  Seriously!   Apparently Comcast could no longer recognize the modem that had been working fine all this time without using the default name!   They clearly recognized the problem right away ~ for $70 ~ and since we hadn't done anything, and since they recognized the 'fix' right away it seems obvious to me  that they had changed something in their system.  THEN when I was ready to come into the group last night ~ Aimoo had taken the servers down!  I can not win!  lol  Anyway, after a miserable day, it's fixed and seems to be working well.   . .. . Well, except that my email didn't seem to recognize me at the new Modem name this morning, and we had to phart around with that for half an hour this morning.  

Ok, bytch over ~ hopefully permanently.    I am going to the party tomorrow, but now I'm worried about whether the walk/driveways will be slick.  I am so prone to slipping and falling.  Sue told the Hostess, Claudia that she was bringing me, and Claudia was delighted.  As I suspected, she didn't send an invitation because I usually didn't go.   I don't actually know Claudia, so I didn't think she could have decided not to like me yet.

The snow we had yesterday and the night before mostly melted, but it left a frosty residue.  I don't walk on frosty residue, so we didn't get the mail yesterday. Barbara got home the day before yesterday and brought our trash and recycle bins up to the garage yesterday morning so I could easily bring them inside. It's going to remain below freezing or barely above for the next few days, so again, I hope I can walk to and from Sue's car without putting on a show.   Ok, enough about me ~ actually way too much!


It's hard to believe that JFK was assassinated 50 years ago.   I was in Hawaii ~ rather wish I were there today.   I've been watching some of the coverage.  It's even harder to see how we were then, and how far we've come from the people we were.  I wish I thought we'd moved in the right direction.  That was such a positive and hopeful time.  Now I feel hopeless much of the time.  I think I'd like a time machine ~ but of course I'd have to take my laptop back with me.  Couldn't leave my bestest friends behind. 


Lou Ann, my spacing problem seems to have mostly corrected itself, but I didn't do anything to fix it, so I can't help.   I hate when things fix themselves because you know it will happen again and you won't have a clue what to do to fix it.  

It's definitely brrr-worthy here right now.  Only 23 degrees.

Since we are at the mercy of when the folks putting up the decorations are available to do it, we did take out Fall decorations down and let them put the outside Christmas decorations up.  Lights across the front of the roof, a big wreath (with smooshy lights ~ grr) over the front dormer, small wreaths under the carrage lights on the porch and the garage and a garland over the deck rail.   I asked them to please pull up the Fall flowers in the pots and they didn't so Mike had to do it for me.  (Can you tell I'm not happy with them?  They charge a LOT to do this.)  We may not decorate outside next year, though we do like having the lights up and everyone compliments us on them, so I think the neighbors like them, too.   ANYWAY, we won't turn the lights on until Thanksgiving night, but the wreaths and garland are already out there.  Several of our other neighbors have decorated, too, and are keeping their lights off for now, too.

I don't know when we'll Deck the Halls inside.  We don't do a whole lot, but even that is tiring anymore.  What a pain in the tush.  I used to decorate every inch of the house and loved every minute of it.   I'm thinking we may start after Laine leaves and do it little by little.

As usual we are ordering Christmas gifts rather than shopping in the stores.  It's more fun to shop in the stores and then maybe stop for a Hot Chocolate or something, but not so much anymore.  Phooey.  I have Mike mostly done, but Christmas morning may be a bit ~ quite a bit ~ disappointing.  Santa has always brought him lots of goodies, but last year Santa really got sick of Mike going back to the same stores and buying more and "better" stuff afterwards.  Santa should think that meant Mike really liked everything, but instead Santa feels one-upped, so last year he said that was "it!".  No more goodies for Mike's stocking.   Of course it's actually more disappointing for Santa than Mike, but Santa must keep his word.   Anyway, Santa can't come up with little non edible things to fill the stockings this year.  It's gonna be bleak!

We know what we are getting for everyone except Aaron and Christina.  For the other new parents, we're getting personalized, dated Lenox ornaments, but the new baby won't be here until the end of January, and we don't know what his name will be yet.  I don't want to get something that feels like a gift exchange, but just something for the baby or at least that doesn't make them feel like they need to get something for us.

I know Carolyn is having financial difficulties and we want to get something for her as we always have, but we don't want her to feel like she needs to get something for us.  It's awkward.  We'll discuss it with Laine when she's here and see if she has any thoughts, or can maybe help her mom see she doesn't need to give us anything.

Otherwise, we need to get to ordering soon.  It's a bit more impersonal, just ordering things and having them sent, but necessary.  The holidays really are different now.

I'm so sorry you are feeling yukky again!   Hope you're all better this morning!

Arggghhhhh!!!!  What the hell is wrong with Aimoo?
We are back to my August skin.....how the hell does that even happen?
If I cannot save them how can they??  This sucks and I am not going
to deal with this today.  Maybe tomorrow it will be back the way it
should be.  I hope so anyway.
That gaggy feeling was gone the next day so I guess that something
I ate just did not agree with me.  Sorry for the remarks about 
putting up Christmas Decorations already.  I keep forgetting how
close to Thanksgiving we are and I totally agree with lighting up
Thanksgiving evening.  Once my father was gone, we started doing
the tree Thanksgiving evening.  Well, actually, not until we switched
to an artificial tree.
A woman from church gifted my mom with $100 dollars because she
admired her and evidently this is something she does.  Mom has 
decided to buy a new Christmas Tree since Joanne bought us one
with all white lights and we love colored lights.  I had adjusted but
I guess not did not and she really wants colored lights.  It is her
money so it is her choice.  She is watching for a good sale.  So it
will probably be later than Thanksgiving this year.  No biggie.  I
know that Josh will make time to help up out.
The rest of moms gift came.  It came in a huge flat box so I knew
it was for me, but she kept trying to look at the label and I kept 
saying "quit looking" so she got mad at me saying she had boxes
coming too.  I said "not anything that big" and she just sulked.  It
is really hard to live with her are times and I am sure she feels
the same :)  But I love her and that is all that matters.
TGIF, I cannot believe it.  Where does the time go?
I finished the 5th book in the Colegium Chronicles Series.  It
was just recently released so I am sure it is a long wait till 
another comes out...if another comes out.  I will have to check
into that to see is there will be more to the series...I hope so
as I feel invested in the characters, lol.
I am going to read the new Charlie Parker next :)
Have a great weekend.

Good Morning.  We're not going to make it above freezing today.  It's only in the 20s now.  Brrrrrrr  smiley29

The sidewalks are clear, though, so I don't have to worry about slip-sliding when going to the party this afternoon, thank goodness.  If you saw how close the house where the party is to us, you'd hoot about Sue driving me there.  I guess I made an impression when I walked about the same distance from our house to hers for her party, and then promptly fell on my fat fanny in her doorway.  lol.  She very graciously told me it would give her an excuse not to walk because she is having pain in her hip and is going to the Dr today to see if she can get some help for it. 

I made a meatloaf last night, so we'll have that to eat on for a couple of day before gearing up for Thanksgiving.

Mike gave me an early Christmas present last night!  The new Leslie Meier mystery, Christmas Carol Murder and a bag of Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate covered peanut butter filled pretzels!  His thinking is that I need to read the book BEFORE Christmas rather than after, and while reading I need the pretzels to munch on.  You do have to love the way the boy thinks ~ EXCEPT that I have been soooo good doing low carb eating.   I'm not losing well because I think you have to move at least a little bit to lose, but I have been really sticking with it and over a very long time I've nudged off 15 lbs.  It won't take very long to pack them back on eating chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels!  I think I ate half the bag last night!  There goes the diet! 

smiley15

Lou Ann, I kind of wondered why you went to a pink skin.  I saw on the FB Aimoo.com that skins were missing, so they know about the problem.  One of the Admins said that she just re-installed hers and it worked.  No help there for you, since you can't save them.  For some reason, I didn't lose mine in the other group or in my back up group. Don't say that too loudly, please.  I don't want to tempt the fates.

I'm glad you didn't get sick after all.  What a nice thing that the woman gave your mom $100!  Awesome!  I love the colored lights on the tree too.  We used to put a string of twinkling white lights inside the branches and then strings of colored lights over the tops of the branches. It looked magical with the white lights twinkling from inside like little stars and the "old fashioned" colored lights.  Now, ours too has permanently attached white lights.  We ordered some strings of multi colored to put over them this year.  Not the same effect, but I think we will like it better.  We actually did that the last two years, but the strings we got at Walgreens were red and green.  Fairly good effect, but like you, we want the whole package.

We also changed the lights on our Spruce outside to multi colored this year.  The rest of the house is done in white lights.  I think I like the effect, but I really need to see it from a distance, so I'll wait until after Thanksgiving.

It's so hard to order gifts for someone you live with ~ believe me, I understand!   It was challenging in the old days when we went shopping together in the stores, but we could still surprise each other.  Sometimes.  Now, it's harder.  I rarely have anything for Mike that he doesn't know what it is well in advance.  He still often manages to surprise me.   He showed me my "big gift" the other night ~ he had it wrapped and it's really a beautiful package!  He said he wanted to look at it himself, but the package was too nice to open in advance.  Ha.  I haven't a clue what could be inside ~ sort of like a small shoebox.  Whatever could it be?!  I do love the anticipation.  

I'm also loving your pretty borders!

  smiley15

Have a Swell Saturday!

It is darn cold.  10° out!  Yesterday we got our first real snow.  All the
grass and trees white but nothing on roads and sidewalks.  A lot of grass
still showing, so not an official real snow, lol.  I do not have to go out till
Wed so I am good.
Nothing much new to talk about.  I suppose I should fix the skin, but a part
of me says F them, lol.  Though all our Thanksgiving borders, etc do not look too hot with the watermelon background, lol.  But a week from now I will be
changing it all for December, so am going to leave it.  Maybe it will switch
back when they figure out what went wrong.
I am glad you are enjoying my borders.  I really need to add them all into
my saved borders, as I have not kept up with that.  I hope you enjoy the
party and find some must have products that will make life easier.
So long till tomorrow.

Good Morning.
Let the Count Down to Thanksgiving begin!

I'm not sure if we count today and Thursday or not.  Should the CountDown calendar show 3 days, or 5?  Whichever, we're in the home stretch.

The party yesterday was fun, and I spent way too much money.  Products are expensive, but very good I think.  I hope!  It's called Norwex.

Sue and her next door (new) neighbor picked me up so I got to meet Linda, too.  Seems very nice.  Claudia's house is absolutely amazing!  They have things collected from their trips around the world, much from Africa, everywhere.  It's a show place.   I told her when she comes to my house she will think nobody lives here because all the counters are bare due to one of my obstreperous cats need to push everything to the floor.   She also served elegant 'goodies'.  I had a mini cream puff and a mini eclair.  I didn't know you could make them that small!

Lisa (also a neighbor) demo'd the products and made me feel like I needed every one of them.  Sue, sitting next to me has and loves many of them.  I was sunk.  lol     Got to visit with several other neighbors a bit, too.  They really are a lovely group of women.

Back at home, we had meatloaf and afterwards shared a glass of Port.  I think I could learn to really like port.

Going out to lunch today and to do a bit of shopping and mail my great niece Katie's birthday card.  I hope it makes it in time.  I'm really cutting it close.  I had the card, just didn't get to the post office.  


 
Lou Ann, I agree.  Don't mess with the skin until it's time to change to the December/Christmas one.   If you had a way to save them, it would be different, but because of the way we were set up, I don't think there is any way to do that.  

I hope you do save your lovely borders.   I've saved several, but not all.  This one is especially lovely.

I apparently am having that text/spacing problem again today.  You never know what causes it or when to expect it.  Or how to fix it!  Sooo irritating!

Cold here too, but not as cold as you are and no snow predicted for a while.

Have a fun day!

Sharing a note from our Bubs.  Bless her heart, she's really been through it this year.

Thanks so much for remembering my birthday week Dorothy!! I'm the big 60 this year....LOL!
It's been a few rough months. After the heart surgery I got an infection in the leg they took the vein out of. Then big blisters formed on my leg that I had to have another surgery to drain them. I've been on IV's for a month but got the pick pulled out this week...YEAH!!! John's had to pack the wounds on my leg they drained twice a day but they are healing good. Friday I can honestly say I'm feeling better!!
Hope all is well with you and Mike...hugs,Barb

Good Morning!  I called in sick today.  I'm NOT sick, I'm faking it so I can just take the day off!   Shhhh.  Don't tell on me.   

Of course even though it's officially a sick day, I may still do a load or two of laundry, and I'm thinking about making that breakfast casserole today instead of tomorrow.  That way Mike and I can have it on Tuesday and Wednesday, and we can finish it off with Laine on Thursday morning.  I'd better stop planning stuff, or my lovely Sick Day will be wasted!  

We're definitely in count down mode, but I think we have things planned for as easy an execution as possible.  

We did a bit of shopping, mailed some letters and then went to mid afternoon lunch at the Bonefish yesterday.  I blew my diet all to H. and I really didn't need to. They had lots of good low carb things on the menu.  Feeling guilty now.  I had Creme Brulee French toast with bacon and strawberries in Creme Fresh.  Yummy, but guilt ridden.  Mike had filet and lobstr Eggs Benedict!   Have mercy!  It looked wonderful.


Lou Ann ~ Oh, look.  She's stealing another beautiful border.  She's becoming a regular Klepto!

I'm sorry you are feeling down.  Holidays can really get to you.  I think it has to do with having such high expectations that it's hard for them to be met, and such vivid memories of perfect holidays past that probably really weren't all that perfect either.   

Are you watching all the Christmas movies on Lifetime and Hallmark?  I wasn't going to let myself start until after Thanksgiving, but I have snuck in a few.  I do like them ~ most of them.   We'll start playing Christmas music on Thanksgiving too, and we have a hugs sack of Christmas DVDs that we have to watch.  It's traditon!

Feel better.
