Char Im so sorry to hear about your godson. You and he are in my thoughts and prayers.

Amy Good for you for walking four miles today!

Cant believe this is our last day of the April BSG. I hope everyone has a successful month of May. i am putting the new challenges together this time, so I have to see if we will have two or three teams.

Today was a quiet and relaxing day for me, as we didnt have anywhere we had to go. I walked for four miles this morning - 3 with Dave and then another mile with Sophie and Dave! The rest of the day I sat around reading and watching a movie, then wrote my blog.

Char, I dont know if youll see this, but my heart goes out to you! I remember you saying that Sebastian had sepsis a week or so ago, and had surgery, I believe. i am saying prayers for him and his family.

Michele, sounds like you had a nice time at the lake, even though the trails werent real interesting. I dont like the trails at the parks here in Florida as much as I do in PA - the trees and plants are so much different. Thats nice that Amber is all set for her prom! Does she have a guy shes going with or will she go with some girlfriends? Glad you had some beautiful weather for your birthday!
I did have a nice time at the restaurant with our friends last night. It was expensive there but nice to go for a special occasion, plus we had a gift card to use for part of the check.

Beth, great job getting some spring cleaning done. I need to get in a cleaning mood!

Hope, I like to go to arts and crafts shows here, but dont usually buy anything anymore, since its usually the same types of things. Our new car is white and has a real interesting interior of black with orangish tan seats and stitching on the black. I really like it!

Well, I will be back tomorrow to check in and add up, post my points and collect everyones. Have a marvelous Monday!

Good evening!
I was so sorry and shocked to hear about Char's godson! I can't imagine what that has to feel like!
We had a great day at the lake yesterday. Glen fished and Amber & I explored the trails. I have to say I didn't enjoy this park as much as Inks Lake State Park. Just not much wildlife, the trails were kind of boring--all flat trails, no variety. We left there about 930pm and got home shortly after 1am.
And today, my birthday, was spent Prom dress shopping with Amber. Her prom is Saturday. So we got the dress, shoes, makeup & she got her haircut. So, as of right now, she's set. But I know something else will pop up!

Amy, yeah, for whatever reason I don't announce my birthday. It's like just another day. But it was nice getting the Goodies & notes from you all! emoticon That is one expensive app! Glad you got your money back, tho. And they do make it difficult to get your money back. Quick to take it, tho. This whole weekend our weather has been beautiful, too. Windy but lots of sun, mid 80s. We have more rain coming in on Monday, tho, and it's supposed to go all week. How did the dinner with your friends go?

Hope, sounds like you had a good day yesterday.

Beth, you can come spring clean my house when you're done emoticon

Well, everyone!
Have a good night!
It was GREAT being here with you all. I hope to see you again in May!

Michele

Hi everyone. I had a busy week with work, and doing more spring cleaning this weekend.

Hope, an arts and crafts show sounds fun, even if you didn't buy anything.

Amy, glad you got the refund. That's frustrating.

Michelle, sounds like you'll be having a fun birthday!

Char, I love being able to have the windows open to get fresh air into the house.

Hello, Water Drinkers! Sorry I didnt make it in here last night. Yesterday I walked with Levi for 30 minutes. I havent exercised yet today, but I plan to. This morning we went to an arts and crafts show. Its a yearly event, and I usually end up buying something there, but there werent as many vendors as usual, and I didnt buy anything this time. It was still interesting to look at everything, though, and it was nice to walk around outside.

Amy Im glad you wont be charged for that expensive app! I dont blame you for losing sleep over that. I hope you can catch up on your sleep today. We have gorgeous weather here, too. Its so nice. Enjoy your dinner with your friends tonight. How exciting to get a new car! What color is it?

Michele Have a great trip to the lake! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

Char Sorry that Camden is having some behavior issues. When is his birthday? Im sure hell enjoy his party.

Beth I hope you are doing well.

Michele,

Thanks so much for letting us know it is your birthday tomorrow. emoticon I was in charge of announcing birthdays this month, and we did not have yours listed. Hope you dont mind that I added it and will make a birthday announcement on the team wall for you tomorrow! Have a wonderful time at the lake with Glen and Amber. Hope the weather is fantastic!

Im not sure I will be able to get on here later, so I will write a quick post now. I didnt have a great nights sleep, because I woke up at 3 something to go to the bathroom and then sent an email to Apple about something that had me upset. I was looking at this weight loss/workout app on my phone on our way home from the car dealer yesterday and must have inadvertently tapped on a subscribe button, which charged my credit card $119.99 for a years subscription! I spent a long time last night trying to get a refund, but it wouldnt allow me to do it when I went through the steps on Apple, even though I followed the directions multiple times. Then Dave called the credit card company to report it, and they said it hadnt gone through yet (the payment was pending,) and to try to deal with Apple when it did. So, it was really bothering me, and when I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I looked at my emails and saw the purchase went through after midnight. I tried to go and get a refund again, but that app site didnt allow it (crooked IMO), just said I could cancel next years subscription that would be charged automatically! What?!? I was so angry! So, I went to Apple Support and wrote a note with the order number and finally got a reply back this morning that they would be refunding the money. Who knew it would be so difficult! Obviously I deleted the app from my phone, and in the future will be very careful with those sneaky subscriptions. Still dont know how I did it!

The weather here is gorgeous! Dave and Sean are outside on the driveway working on their cars (Sean washing his and Dave figuring out things on ours.) I had a 9:00 hair appointment for a cut and color, and then had breakfast. After I write this post, I will probably do some cleaning in the house that I neglected to do this week. Not sure what else Ill be doing. We have dinner reservations tonight with four of our friends. Lisa and her SO, Curt are leaving here on Tuesday for their summer home in Maine (I feel like I shared that before,) so we are having a farewell dinner out for her. I feel like we should have them over for dinner here tomorrow also, but not sure if Dave will go for it - well see!

Michele, we used to have both the SUV and regular car, and I miss that, but now we have a golf cart, so those two vehicles are all we need here. We had a Jeep before the Murano that we towed behind our RV and a Mini Cooper. We sure have gone through lots of stages with our vehicles over the years!

Hope, Char and Beth, have a wonderful weekend! Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of our challenge? Char and Beth, are you going to sign up for May -hope you can join us!

Good evening!
Tomorrow we're going to Lake Tawakoni, about a 4hr drive. Sunday is my birthday & we may be staying the night in a cabin there. As of today they had nothing available but we could also stay in a hotel. Glen is going to fish and Amber & I will go find one of their many hiking trails. It's a State Park so there should be lots of trails.

Amy, CONGRATS on getting a new car! So your day was pretty busy. We bought an SUV a couple months ago. We kept the car, tho. The SUV is handy for camping & longer trips but it is quite the gas guzzler. The Dodge can go for ever on a tank. We've taken the car to Corpus Christie & back, about 9 hrs total, on 1 tank, maybe fill up when we're about an hour from home.

Have a good night, everyone!

Michele

Happy Friday, Friends!

I had a busy day! It didnt start out that great - I woke up with a bad backache (I think from something I did at my workout on Wednesday) and a sinus headache (it was raining,) so I didnt go to the gym. I took ibuprofen and fortunately in about an hour felt better. Arthritis isnt bad today either, which is a blessing!
At 9:30 I went to a friends house to visit and play Mah Jongg with another friend till noon. Afterwards, Dave picked me up and we went to a Nissan car dealer an hour and a half away, and ended up there for several hours, coming home with a new car! Dave had done all the research on what we wanted ahead of time, so I figured we would get it today. We traded in our Murano SUV for a Maxima sedan. I loved the Murano and wasnt real excited about giving it up, but we had put a lot of miles on it from lots of traveling to PA and a trip to SD and CO last summer, plus Dave was ready to have a change from an SUV. So, we didnt get out of there till 5:30 and were starved, since we didnt have any lunch. We went to a restaurant for dinner before heading home. And that was my day!

Michele, good workouts with the lawn mowing and gym! Im sorry to hear that one of the cats you take care of got hit by a car - how sad! That was very kind of the gentleman to pick it up and freeze it till he could give it to you to bury.

Char, I hope Camden has a nice birthday party! Does he get angry when he does the kicking? I know our son used to kick when he was that age, trying to be a Power Ranger. He had a lot of impulsivity issues with his ADHD.

Hope and Beth, hope you had a fantastic Friday!

Good afternoon!
I mowed my yard and my neighbors. And I got to the gym this morning.

Camden kicked a teacher, huh? Wow! At least he didn't get ISS--In School Suspension. 6 yrs old . Is there a theme yet? emoticon , early. Have a good day at work!

Hope “ mean Jesus” maybe she meant they were mean to Jesus? Camden calls him “baby Jesus “ because of our nativity scene.

Amy yeah allergies can tire you out. My husband has chronic sinus issues. Congrats on the weight loss . Sucks about your arthritis. I only have it in my thumbs mostly my left. What a cool pic of the bird. It actually looks like a kite.

Michelle I’m glad Amber was feeling good enough to go to school. I’m wondering if she has irritable bowel? I’d be happy to have thunderstorms. We’ve had beautiful weather of coarse the last 2 days have been windy as heck now the temps are going to drop and tomorrow we’re supposed to get a mix of rain and snow. Ugh. I’m sorry about the kitty. My mom takes care of the neighbor kitties feeds them, has a house for them with a warming lamp for cold weather and even has gotten a couple of them spade.

Well was supposed to take Camden to his appointment yest but the counselor was sick and also canceled next Thursday because she had a drs appt so I’m thinking God was saying Thursdays were not a good option for me so we rescheduled for Friday May 3rd in the morning. Was kinda a relief. Planning his 6th bday party. Told him he had to behave in school because of that. His daddy had to go to school yesterday and have a chat with him because he kicked the teacher hence the counseling. Ugh. Well better shower soon before work

Good evening, everyone!
Had some sad news today. I take care of a 'cat colony' --8 cats in the colony. I hadn't seen one of them, Sissy, for a couple days. Finally, this morning, an elderly gentleman told me she got hit by a car. He picked her up in a bag and put her in his freezer, bless his heart. He gave her to me and I buried her in my backyard. emoticon

Amy, no, no medicine. She has a follow up with her regular doctor next Thursday so we'll have to see what happens. She is still having pain, tho. I don't want to give her anything OTC, just on the chance it could matters worse. Glad your allergies were good. Sorry about the arthritis, tho. I don't have it, thankfully, but, of course, I know people who do.
I just Googled that bird and found it on the Audubon Society site. That's a beautiful bird! And it's found mostly in FLA.

Hope everyone had a great day!
Now--
Have a great evening!

Hello, Water Drinkers! Today I walked for 20 minutes with Levi. He didnt sleep as much today as he usually does, but we had a nice day. Tonight I had choir practice.

Amy Im glad your allergies werent as bad today, and Im sorry your arthritis was bothering you. That swallow tailed kite is interesting. Ive never seen a bird like that before.

Michele Im glad Amber is feeling better. I hope she made it through the school day okay.

Char and Beth I hope you both had a good day today.

Hi, Ladies!

My allergies werent as bad today, just problems with the arthritis in my hands and feet tonight. I had a pretty good day though but I cant think of anything worthy of noting besides that I went to play golf. The weather was hot but not too uncomfortable. When I got home, I was tired, so Ive been relaxing and wrote my blog, which took awhile.
Oh, when Dave and I took Sophie for her bathroom walk, we saw a bird that we had never seen here before, flying near the pond. It was large, white and black with a split tail, that was very unusual. When we got inside I googled it and then found it in our Florida bird book and wrote down the date we first discovered it - it was a swallow tailed kite.

Michele, Im glad that Amber wanted to go to school yesterday. I hope she isnt having more stomach pains. Did they give her any medication to take? Thats frustrating that with all the tests, they didnt have a definite diagnosis. Good to hear it wasnt her appendix though!
Good for you getting to the gym despite the storms!

Hope, out of the mouths of babes! Kids say the funniest things! I wonder, too, what her teacher said that got her confused! Thats also funny about her wanting to watch Rudolph! I guess theres no reason you cant watch Christmas movies at other times of the year!

Char, Im sorry you dont get much down time. Building a garage sounds very ambitious! i enjoyed gardening when I lived in PA. Now all we seem to do is trim our shrubs, because everything grows so fast here! Thats strange that only one eye is affected when you go outside. Great job on getting all that cleaning done. Hope your moms garage sale went well!

Beth, hope you had a good day!

Good evening, everyone!
Amber decided to go to school today, so she's feeling better. A little bit of stomache pain but that's it.
Today we had horrendous thunderstorms. It poured ALL day! Sometimes it was so bad it came down in sheets. Our backyard is a swimming pool right now.

Hope, Rudolph-- emoticon Gotta love kids! Fabulous on getting the walking in! 'Mean Jesus'. Hmm...Wonder what she heard...

Char, building a garage, huh? WOW! While we were just dating I helped Glen build a shed for his mom. Out of wood, not a Lowe's put it together and you're done. That was a LOT of work. And it was almost as big as my apartment. emoticon Sorry about the lack of downtime. I know that's rough! Every so often everyone needs to be alone, just to re-group.

Amy, YAY on the loss! That's wonderful! Hope you're allergies are clear tomorrow. You had a busy day today. I went to the gym this morning--I ran between the raindrops emoticon

Have a good night, everyone!

Hi! Just a real quick post from me. I’m ready for bed-allergies are just making me so tired after dinner, but I am trying to stay up till 10, so I don’t wake up in the middle of the night. My day was good-went to the gym, to the pool at a neighbor’s house, and out to lunch with my friend, Lisa, who is leaving here next week to go to her summer home in Maine. On my way home, I stopped at the grocery store to buy ingredients for a new chicken dish I made for dinner. It was yummy! I’ve been doing strict keto yesterday and today, and my weight is down to my lowest again, thank goodness! Now I hope to get down 9 more pounds over the next couple months!

I’ll write responses in the morning-have a great Thursday!

Hello, Water Drinkers! Today I walked for 20 minutes with Levi. It was in the morning, but it was already hot outside. Levis sister said something funny today. Her father asked her what she learned about at school, and she said, Mean Jesus. We tried to tell her that Jesus was nice, but she insisted that they had learned about mean Jesus. Who knows what her teacher said that she misunderstood.

Char Im so sorry you feel like you have no down time. That is really hard. Everybody needs to take breaks. Levis sister goes to preschool every morning, then her father picks her up, brings her home, and feeds her lunch. After that he puts her down for a nap, and she usually sleeps all afternoon. I just take care of her sometimes when she wakes up from her nap early. Good luck with the yard sale.

I hope the rest of you had a good day today!

Amy I don’t have severe allergies but for some reason my right eye keeps watering and burning when I’m outside. I don’t really have any neighbors my age and it seems like I have no down time only having Thursdays off which I spend with my mom and now after school I’ll be driving 1 hour one way to take Camden to counseling since there’s no local pediatric counselor around. I can’t wait for long walks. Our weekends off trying to get things done on the house. Still have a garage to build and a garden to put in.

Beth good job getting fruits and vegetables and water in. I really need to do something I cleaned out my closet and drawers today and a couple pairs of jeans were really tight uncomfortable and one pair couldn’t button. Ugh! Seriously?

Michelle glad Ambers home. Hope she is feeling better

Hope those long walks with Levi must be relaxing. Where does his 3 year old sister go most days that you don’t have her as well?

Just taking a break. Been cleaning house, cleaning out closets, going to take stuff to my moms garage sale tomorrow. Wished my daughter would come and get her boxes and boxes of stuff from when she stayed here for 3 months. I hate clutter. So nice to open the windows and let fresh air in. Finally! Yay!

Hello, Water Drinkers! Today I walked for 25 minutes with Levi. I had a nice day with him. I kept his three-year-old sister for a while today, too. She wanted to watch TV, and their dad had already shown me how to work their DVR, so I asked her which show on there she wanted to watch. She picked Rudolph, LOL. Christmas in April.

Michele Im sorry theyre not sure whats wrong with Amber, but Im glad they released her from the hospital. I hope shes okay.

Beth Good job on your water and freggies!

Amy Sorry about your allergies. Sorry for poor Sophie, too. I hope she recovers quickly. It sounds like you had a nice day otherwise. Nice pictures!

Char Im sorry your boss is so hard to work with.

We just brought Amber home about an hour or so ago. Between sonagrams & Xrays they really have no diagnosis except gastroenteritis. IBD was also suggested. So, in other words, who knows? But they kept her overnight for observation & released her today. She has a follow-up next Thursday.
emoticon SO much for your prayers!

Char, that would be a great job! I have my fingers & toes crossed, too!

Beth, I also hope things improve for you. You're right, tho, it is hard to focus on other things when family matters come up.

Hope, YAY for the walk! Enjoy your time off from practice.

Amy, you had a productive day. Hope you weren't as tired today. BOO on allergies! Poor Sophie--hope she heals quickly! Sounds like you had a nice, peaceful day!

Let me go catch up on Blogs. Tomorrow I'll have to do one.

Have a good evening!

Just a normal day for me today. Sticking with the water drinking. Did good with fruits and veggies today, but also had some junk food from Easter.

Hope, it's probably nice to have a break from practice once in a while.
Amy, reading on the patio sounds very relaxing. I have allergies too - it's bad this time of year.
Char, that's hard having to deal with a difficult boss. I've been there. Hang in there.
Michelle, I hope Amber is doing better and that they figure out what's wrong soon. Hugs.

Oh, Michele, Im so sorry to hear about Amber. I have been praying for her and hoping by now they know the cause of her pain.

Char, it must be hard to have a boss who acts like she is bipolar with the mood shifts and her reaction to things! Letting God take care of things now that you have the applications in is wise.
I should have explained the birdcage. Its a tall screened in patio, and called a birdcage, because it has screens on all sides, even on top. Ill see if I can find one of my pictures to show you. I love it because you are outside and dont get any bugs bothering you. We even have a roof over part of it, so we can be outside in the rain.

I had a good day, except for my allergies continuing to bother me. I put eyedrops in my eyes and took a decongestant and ibuprofen this afternoon.
This morning we took our dog, Sophie to get her teeth cleaned - very expensive but necessary. They had to extract two teeth. Poor thing has been been moping around since shes been home. Shes finally sleeping.
I also went to my devotional womens meeting this morning. A lot of neighbors are away, so there were only four of us, but it was great, and I felt more comfortable talking. The meeting lasted two and a half hours! When I got home, I went for a 2 1/4 mile walk - it was another lovely day here. I spent the late afternoon reading on the patio. I also did some meditation out there, since it was so peaceful listening to our waterfall, birds chirping and our wind chime.

This is looking out to our waterfall and backyard neighbors - you can barely see the pond on the right.

Looking out toward the pond (kids were fishing there Easter Day)

The whole thing looking at the back of our house

Hope, I will read your poetry blog after I post this. Then we are getting in the hot tub - its been awhile.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Just a real quick post.
Amber has been admitted to the hospital tonight. They suspected appendicitis but after an ultrasound & Xrays have determined that it isn't. She's been admitted mainly for observation. With luck, she'll be discharged tomorrow. My husband & I are home long enough to grab a few things and we'll be heading back out.
Tomorrow I may or may not be here.

Michelle I don’t know how you made it through Easter with no candy but good for you! That’s awesome! Haven’t heard anything back yet about any of the applications. I’m trying to let God lead on this one. I’d love the school nurse job I think. My boss once again is being nicey nice. Bipolar. I never know from one day to the next with her.
Hope sounds like you had a busy day in church. We’d make a good team in the jelly bean eating thing then. I’ll eat the black you eat the rest. LOL
Amy your birds have their own patio? Jealous! Yes I enjoyed my warm sunny peaceful day I definitely need more. I’m not sure I’ll ever get chocolate out of my system though

Beth I’m sorry your stressed about family situation. Yup I only know to well. I pray things get better for you soon. But this is a great place to vent for sure. No judgment. Hugs.

Hi, Water Drinkers,

My points for Week 3 are 2263.

I had a pretty good day, except I was really tired all day for some reason. I did my normal Monday stuff - went to the gym, did laundry, and went to play Mah Jongg tonight. It was another really nice weather day, so I enjoyed time reading on our patio.

Hope, that makes sense that you should have off for handbell practice tonight after all the services you performed this weekend. Glad you are getting out for more walks with Levi.

Beth, Im sorry to hear you are going through stressful times with your family - I sure know what that is like. Sending you positive thoughts, prayers and hugs!

Char, a school nurse job would be perfect for you! I am crossing my fingers that you get it!

Michele, hope you had a great day! Its always amazing how fast the weeks go!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Hello, Water Drinkers! Today I walked for 25 minutes with Levi. I had a nice quiet day with him. We usually have handbell practice on Monday nights, but we didnt have it tonight. Our director gave us a day off since we played for both Good Friday and Easter.

Beth Im sorry youve been so stressed about family issues. I hope things improve for you.

Char Good luck with the school nurse job!

Amy Im glad you had a good Easter. It sounds like a nice day.

Michele I hope you had a good day today.

I have been so stressed lately about family stuff. Not in the mood to get into it right now. It's hard to focus on healthy eating when you're worrying about others. I'm sure you all know what it's like.

Char, a school nurse job sounds interesting. I've never done anything like that.

Amy, sounds like you had a nice relaxing Easter!

Hope, I've never played handbells. My cousins did when we were kids and I always loved watching them.

Michelle, good job not eating candy yesterday. I definitely did! Oh well. Lol

Talk to you all tomorrow.

My points for week three are 1046. I need to step up my game for week 4. But another busy week . Something has to give. Applied for school nurse today. What a wonderful job that would be (some challenges I’m sure) . Still praying. Was just telling Scott yesterday that it would be a perfect job and it came across my email today. Fingers and toes crossed. Gods will.

Happy Easter! Hope you all had an egg-cellent day! Mine was quiet, but good! The three of us spent the day together. We had breakfast, and then Dave helped Sean install his new air filtration system into his car (his birthday gift,) and I sat out on the birdcage patio, looking at old photos of my family, texting my sister and some friends, listening to and watching the birds, as well as some people fishing on the pond. It was an absolutely gorgeous sunny and warm day, and I felt very peaceful. Then later after lunch, we took Sophie for a walk at the park, then came home and went out on the patio again to read, and I wrote my blog. We had a nice simple dinner of spiral ham, baked sweet potato and steamed asparagus, and just a little while ago, I had a small piece of ice cream cake for Seans birthday. I already have a stomach ache. I have had enough of eating carbs/sweets this past week. I am done!

Hope, Im glad you had a nice Easter, playing handbells at all the church services, and having dinner and playing a game with your family. I like the game, Five Crowns!

Michele, oh, dear! I dont blame them coming home with all the arguing and screaming - no one needs that on a camping trip. I think a quiet holiday is nice - a time to reflect. I did not miss being at a social gathering at all! Great job having no candy! Wish I could say the same! I have had no interest for months and now this week I went off low carb completely! I vow to get right back to it tomorrow.

Char, sounds like you had some nice, peaceful alone time outside just like me! Loved it! I hope this coming week at work will be less stressful for you. We got the chocolate and jelly beans out of our system and now can get "back on the wagon!


Beth, I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend! I will be collecting points for this week, so dont forget to post them tomorrow.

Have a marvelous Monday!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Hello, Water Drinkers! Happy Easter! I had a very nice Easter. This morning I sang in the choir and played handbells at three church services, which was a lot. Then I had Easter dinner with my parents, my aunt, my sister, and my nephew. After that we played a new card game called Five Crowns. It was a fun game, and we had a good time.

Michele Im sorry your camping trip didnt work out. I hope you enjoyed your quiet day at home.

Char Im the opposite of you. I like all the jelly beans EXCEPT the black ones. Im glad you got some nice peaceful time out on the deck in the beautiful weather.

Amy Happy birthday to Sean! Im sorry youve had a sad week. I hope you had a nice quiet Easter. Wow, your neighbor was really lucky that her accident wasnt worse. Your embryology unit sounds fun.

Beth I hope you are doing well.

How was everyone's Easter?
I came home last night and this morning Glen text me asking what time did I want him to come get me. This was about 8am. So I told him 9. Plenty of time to fill the eggs for the Egg Hunt and chit chat, etc. Well, about 10am he & Amber pull up with everything from the campsite. He got tired of hearing the arguing & screaming at kids. So we spent a quiet day at home, went to WalMart to get worms for my turtles. The gym was closed so I didn't get there today. I'll have to go tomorrow. And I ate absolutely NO candy today.

Amy, emoticon to Sean! Your friend was SO lucky! That could have been so much worse, especially given her age! She had an angel on her shoulder, for sure!

Hope, baby emoticon ! How fun!

Char, black jellybeans are THE BEST ones! And I LOVE black licorice--not Twizzlers. Licorice! Any word on the applications?

Beth, I hope you had a nice weekend!

Have a good night, everyone!

Amy nice that you got to celebrate Seans bday as well as Easter. There’s something to be said about a quiet as holiday as well. Holidays can be hard on people who are missing loved ones who have passed on. Glad you got your water in and ate well. Not sure I can say that I can say the same. I can say I ate chocolate other than 2 days and my weight in black jelly beans don’t care about the other ones. I’m happy your neighbor will be ok. I’m sure she was frightened to death. Nice of you to check on her.

Hope How nice that your local store displays ducklings and chicks. It’s sad though when people buy them and bunnies for Easter then the novelty wears off after a few weeks and they don’t take care of them.

Michelle nothing like a screaming family on the holidays. No thank you. Don’t blame you for escaping. I would have to. Hope you enjoyed your camping trip.

Beth sorry to hear about your pt. I know how that feels all to well. Also, the surprise inspection thing. The fun just never ends.

Well I’m enjoying some time off till the grind starts back up tomorrow. Going to be a busy week. Today is cool and breezy. Yest I got a couple hours on the deck by myself 70’s slight breeze. Beautiful. Peaceful. Thank God for those days.
Have a blessed Easter.

Hi, Ladies!

It is after 11, so Im writing a quick post and will be back tomorrow sometime to do responses (and my other blog!) Tomorrow is not only Easter, but our son, Seans 30th birthday. We took him out to dinner tonight and will stay home with him tomorrow instead of going to our friends house for Easter dinner. Im fine with having a quiet holiday at home, since Ive been sad this week, missing my parents.

I have been drinking lots of water and I ate well for my meals, but I had no exercise today, and I ate some chocolate and jelly beans. emoticon Tomorrow I will have a little more candy, and a piece of ice cream cake, and then it will be strict keto again, starting Monday.

I wasnt home much today. Besides going out to dinner, Dave, Sean and I went on some errands this morning and then out to lunch. Then mid-afternoon, I took an Easter lily and card over to a neighbors house and visited with her. She was in an accident with her golf cart on Monday. She crossed a road and hit the back end of a car that crossed in front of her, then she panicked and when she went to pull over to the side of the road, she put her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake and went flying out of the cart and it hit a tree. She was really banged up and an ambulance took her to the hospital, but thankfully she didnt have any concussion, internal injuries or broken bones - just a lot of cuts, scrapes and bruises on her face, arm, leg and foot, and she needed a bunch of stitches. Shes in her 70s, so I was really concerned about her and grateful to see she was okay! If you read my golf blog, shes the one in the winter picture with the fur on her jacket hood.

Hope, seeing the ducklings and chicks sounds fun! emoticon I did an embryology unit with my second graders for a number of years and loved when the chicks hatched and we got to hold and play with them!

Michele, I dont blame you for going home for a break after all the screaming. Hope they have settled down when you go back tomorrow!

More tomorrow...

Have a "egg-cellent" and hoppy Easter! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello, Water Drinkers! A local downtown store here has a tradition of having ducklings and baby chicks in their front display window during the week before Easter. We went to see them today, and they were really cute. I even got to hold a baby chick.

Michele Sorry about all the screaming. Thats good that you were able to come home and take a break from it. I hope its better when you go back tomorrow.

I hope the rest of you had a good day today. Have a great Easter!

Good evening, everyone!
I came home tonight and will be going back in the morning. The whole gang showed up about 2 & it was all downhill. Screaming at the kids, screaming at each other, you name it they were screaming about it. So I came home on the pretext of having to let the dogs out, feed the turtles, etc. Which, that was true. But I usually do that then go back. I just needed some downtime, I guess. I got a good little tan going, tho. Lots of sun, hardly any wind. YAY!

Hope, sounds like a good day at church. Too bad it rained, tho. But, at least, Levi was in a good mood.

Amy, glad you made it to your gym class! Rain--BOO! Forrest Gump is 25 yrs old? Hard to believe!

Have a good Easter, everyone!

Michele

Hello, Water Drinkers! I worked today, then tonight I sang in the choir and played handbells at our Good Friday service at church. It was a very nice service. Work was good. Levi was definitely in a better mood. I didnt get to walk him in the stroller today because it rained all day.

Amy It sounds like youve been busy the past couple of days. I wouldnt have thought that Forrest Gump was 25 years old. It doesnt seem like it. My nephew turned 23 yesterday.

Michele I hope you enjoy your camping trip.

Beth My goodness, youve had quite a week. I hope you can have a nice relaxing weekend.

Char Thats nice that they had an Easter egg hunt for employees kids. I hope your headache gets better. Good luck with the job you applied for.

Hi, Team!

I missed a day and feel like I have a lot to catch up on! I was really tired last night (probably from being out in the sun for golf) and went to bed early, and then almost overslept for my class at the gym this morning - I jumped into my clothes and ran out the door. Besides being tired at the end of the day, yesterday went well. I played golf and went out to lunch with a group of the ladies afterwards. At home I spent time collecting pictures for my golf blog, but havent felt like writing it yet. We sent out for Chinese take-out for dinner.

Today after I got back from the gym, I went to my friend, Marys house for coffee and a chat, then Dave and I went out to do some errands after lunch. As we came out of Sams Club, there was a torrential downpour and we got soaked, and its been raining since. This evening Ive been reading and writing in my journal. Dave has been reading Gary Sinises book that we got when we went to see him in February, so he decided to watch Forrest Gump again - cant believe it came out 25 years ago!

Michele, how fun that you are camping this weekend! Wow, those are high winds -hope they die down tomorrow so you can put up your tent!

Beth, you sure have had a tough week! Im so sorry that the patient you were close to died unexpectedly!

Char, sorry youve had continuing stress at work! I hope you have a nice relaxing and fun Easter weekend!

Hope, happy birthday to your nephew - how old is he? I hope you had a good day with Levi today and he wasnt fussy.

Good evening, everyone!
We had a somewhat busy day! We're camping this weekend. So the morning consisted of getting the tent and all the camping equipment & getting out to the site. It's just really windy, 30-35 mph winds. So putting up the tent was just too funny. We'll just sleep in the van tonight & put the tent up tomorrow. Glen fished and Amber & I went on a nice walk/hike. Tomorrow his niece & sister & their husbands & kids will be out in the adjoining campsites. So this will be it for peace & quiet. All his family does is fight & argue.

Char, LOL! I really hope you get a call soon on one of the other jobs you put in for.Did you wind up with a migraine? I hope you have a nice time with your in-laws.

Beth, sorry about your patient! that's sad! I hope your weekend is better than your week has been.

Well, everyone, have a good evening!

What a week... On Tues, a patient I was close to died unexpectedly. On Wed, our facility had a surprise state inspection. On Thurs, our furnace stopped working (so glad that didn't happen in the middle of winter). And last night my daughter was up during the night throwing up. Ugh. So tired!

Char, good luck with those job applications!

Sounds like each of you has had a busy week. TGIF!!!

michelle-thats what i got as well progressive bifocals. maizey is husky springer. shes definately full of energy.

Hope 25 min walk! Amazing. youd think that would have been soothing to Levi. Sounds like you had a busy day.

Well I work 3-11 going about 1:45 they are having a Easter egg hunt for the employees kids st 2pm today. Then tomorrow we are going to Scotts folks over night for Easter will be a nice break plus its supposed to be 70 degrees. will take Maizey for a walk. I have a headache today hoping it doesnt turn into a migraine. must be stressed about going to work. Last night got a call from work that woke me up from yes the unreliable girl wondering if she should put a bandaide on a residents foot who just had it debrided and the instructions said keep covered um really??? ugh! cannot wait to be done. At least I got my washer fixed. Have a good day!

Good morning! I lost track of time yesterday and I didn't realize I hadn't gotten here til I was already in bed!

Hope, emoticon to your nephew!

Char, Wow! I can't say anymore than that! I hope you get another job offer. I'm wearing bifocals now, too. I got the Progressives, tho. No way do I want people to see the line. And, to be honest, I don't want to see the line, either. emoticon to hubby! What kind of dog is Maizey? That name is adorable!

Well, let me get to the gym.
Have a good day!

Hello, Water Drinkers! Today I walked with Levi for 25 minutes. For some reason he was kind of fussy today. After work I had choir practice from 6:30 to 8:15, then after that I went to dinner with my nephew, my sister, and my parents. Today is my nephews birthday, so we were celebrating. He chose his favorite Mexican restaurant to go to, and we had a good time. Its been a long day, so Ill do responses tomorrow. I hope you all had a good Thursday!

So the resident bounced back from the stroke. She’s a miracle worker. I’m blamed for being in kahoots with hospice nurses who just want to “kill her off “ Like what??? Stop feeding her etc starve her to death. Omg! The last thing I want this poor lady to do is suffer. Oh I’m just so done. I applied for a state job in a 16 bed mental health facility and at a home care today. Enough is enough. Went got my eyes checked today. Bifocals (knew that was coming) washer died on us yesterday as well mid cycle of coarse so off to the laundry Matt after work (actually it was kind of peaceful there since I was the only one there ) We got the part for the washer hopefully it will work. On the upside my husband got a 2 dollar raise with some back pay which will help pay for my glasses, get propane and help with other bills yay! I did pick the wrong week to give up chocolate though for our challenge I’ve only succeeded 1 day.

Michelle awesome that you got to the gym and a walk

Hope It does feel good to get your hair done doesn’t it? I love having my hair played with. Glad you had a nice visit with your friends.

Amy It’s nice you got Sophie out for walk . I took Maizey the other day (or she took me) as soon as she seen some swans take flight she dang near took me for flight! I’ll also have to check out the book where the crawdads sing. Reese Witherspoon is a good actress.

Can’t wait till Saturday for 2 days off. Really praying to hear from a new (good) job soon. I want this to be the last time I start over because being an egg picker is starting to sound awfully good

Hello, Water Drinkers! I had a good day today with Levi, and we walked for 30 minutes. The weather here has been beautiful lately, and there are lots of flowers blooming. Here are some that I see while Im walking in Levis neighborhood.



After work tonight I went and got my hair cut and colored. It feels good to have that done.

Amy - Im glad your book club went well. I havent read that book, but Ive heard that its good. You had busy days yesterday and today! Im glad you enjoyed it all.

I hope the rest of you had a good day today!

Hi!

Since Im the first one here today, I will make this a quick post. My day was good - went to the gym and took Sophie for a 30 minute walk. Dave and I had our last private golf lesson (at least for awhile) and then went out to lunch. I also had an audiologist appointment (last one for awhile now) and I went to play Samba tonight from 6 till 8:45. Im feeling pretty pooped!

Hope everyone had a good day! Have a happy Thursday!

Hi, Friends!

I had a very busy and great day - first my book club meeting from 10 till almost 12 with 11 women (that went well and everyone enjoyed the book we read - Where the Crawdads Sing) After that I went out to lunch with my friend, Kathy, who I havent seen in awhile. She chose a cafe I had never gone to before or known about that was on top of an antique store a couple miles away, and I enjoyed our conversation, along with a delicious club salad. Then mid-afternoon, I went to a neighbors house for a margarita pool party! Only had a little alcohol and a lot of fun! Once I got home, it was time to make dinner (a zucchini pie) and Ive been watching The Voice this evening. I didnt have formal exercise today, but was on my feet a lot with getting ready for company this morning, so I had 35 active minutes on my fitbit. Although I ate well at my meals, I did have sweets I dont normally eat (a brownie and a couple pieces of Easter candy) - I will definitely rein it in tomorrow!

Char, I can understand you being too tired to spark the past couple days. I can tell you were frustrated by your bosss unwise decision to force feed the resident who had the stroke. I sure hope she isnt in pain and can pass peacefully. Thats a long way for you to go to take Camden to the counselor, but glad you loved her and hoping the sessions will make a difference for him!
I will have to check out Breakthrough - it sounds great! Maybe we can be proofreaders to get paid to read! (as long as its books we like! LOL)

Hope, thanks for sharing the pictures of your day see To Kill a Mockingbird. I would have loved to have seen it! Its frustrating that you cant preview the pictures like when you write a blog. I wasnt too nervous leading my book club group and we had a good conversation about Where the Crawdads Sing. Reese Witherspoon is making it into a movie - I cant wait!
Great job on your walks! Glad you had a nice dinner with your company!

Michele, seems like a lot of us are enjoying reading lately! Sometimes I get overwhelmed trying to figure out what I want to read next! Great job with your continuing exercising! My allergies are acting up a bit this evening, but not as bad as they had been, thanks for asking!

Beth, hope you had a good day!

Wow, lots of blogs were written today - its after 10, so I better read and respond to them tomorrow...

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hello, Water Drinkers! Today I walked 20 minutes with Levi. We had a good day. This evening we had company for dinner. One of my counselors from when I was in my high school church youth group was in town. She came to dinner, plus one of my high school friends who also knew her. We had a very nice visit.

Char Sorry about your resident who had the stroke. Im also sorry about you only getting 5 hours of sleep. Its hard to function when you havent had a good nights sleep. Thats great that you liked Camdens counselor.

Michele Good job going to the gym and walking at the park. How fun to get a new book. My allergies are better, thanks for asking.

Beth and Amy - I hope you both had a good day today!

I just bought David Balddacci's new book "Redemption". I'm in the middle of another book. But as soon as I finish it I'll be starting this new one! I got to the gym this morning and then the park for walking. We got rain & thunderstorms expected for tomorrow.

Char, oh, my! What a week you've had! My daughter is in therapy, too. We're down to 3 times a month now. Having a counsellor that the kid can relate to means everything! Personally, I don't like Amber's therapist but Amber thinks she rocks so I'm good with that.

Hope, that was a really cool play! Interactive, I like that! I loved the book and the movie. Good job on the walking with Levi! How are your allergies?

Amy, what's the book you're reading for your book club? How are your allergies?

Have a good night!

Sorry haven’t been on last couple days. Seems when I work the weekends things are a bit crazy because after work I’m either beat and my chair sucks me in or try to get stuff done around the house. However this past Saturday our hospice resident had another major stroke when I was working was 99% sure she wouldn’t make it through the weekend as this is number 2 and she’s had 3 small ones they are called tia’s. Since she is hospice we just ride it through keep her as comfortable as possible. Well wouldn’t you know it she started talking again and then sentences yest few sips a water few bites of things like yogurt then my boss flies in the door (she’s been gone for about a week) I tell her the progress, she knows hospice says not to force feed her but she has a mind of her own pours a glass of juice into her and a small bowl of pudding leaves 10 min later. Resident goes to sleep an hour later she’s writhing in bed moaning and groaning I can’t wake her up is she restless or in pain finally I just give her antivan. Geez the woman just had a stroke less than 2 days ago and were ramming food down her throat so frustrating! Any way another back to back 5 hours of sleep. Taking another resident to the cardiologist today mid shift one of the other girls is covering me. Yest took Camden my grandson to his 1st counseling app an hour away got lost twice and hit construction but loved her. She was great with him but that will be a weekly event on Thursdays after school so I’ll be driving to my moms 35 min away spending the day with her getting him off the buss drive another hour one way spend an hour there and Thursdays are my only day off. Other than every other weekend. Sigh. Although I love spending time with my mom and Camden is definitely worth it. I really hope it works for his attention and anger issues so we don’t have to resort to pills.

Beth community Easter egg hunt how fun! Camden went to an Easter get together for the kids here met the Easter bunny and played games. Fun for the kids. My eating isn’t the best either. It’s a 50/50 crap shoot but I’m doing better with my water as well. Scott plans on coloring Easter eggs this Thursday with Camden. Believe it or not I’m looking forward to going to the eye doctor. It’s getting tough to see both close when reading (I’m wearing cheaters) and far away.

Hope How fun you got to see To Kill A Mockingbird. I loved the book. The pics are great. Sorry your allergies are kicking up.

Michelle I don’t mind thunderstorms I hate the winds and losing power for a short while is ok as well forces my husband to keep the tv off then there’s peace and quiet. I never know why in the world he turns on the tv in the morning then pics up the phone and goes directly to Facebook. Ughhh usually I’m trying to read. I think Sebastian is doing ok haven’t got a recent update so going to call today. She usually lets me know when things aren’t going well.

Amy I haven’t done well with points since I joined the group. It’s only the 2nd time time I broke 1000. I’m not sure if there is any book clubs around here. I love to read. I’m reading Breakthrough now about the boy who falls through the ice and who’s heart starts beating after his mom prays over him. It’s very hard to put down. I need a job where they pay me to read. That would be bathe ultimate job
Well I better get ready for work. Have a good day all. Supposed to be 60’s today ughhh and I have to work. Why not on the weekend?
