Good morning Jo and everyone....
Jo....I wish I had a place to have a few flowers....I sure miss that! Sounds like you will have a fun Memorial Weekend being with family and friends. It doesn't get any better then that!!
This is the first day this week with no appointments. It has been a crazy week!! I intend on working on my puzzle and not much else!!
I finished the book my daughter gave me to read. It was really good. Sad but very interesting. It sure kept my interest! It is called "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls. She also wrote "Half Broke Horses" which I have read too. These are true stories of her life. She has a third book coming out soon. I look forward to reading it as well. What an amazing woman!
Nic text me this morning. He is taking me to dinner and an "Alan Jackson" concert in August!! He knows how much I love Alan and haven't been to one of his concerts in years!! What a wonderful grandson...he loves his Nana!! I am so excited. Seeing Alan will be great but spending special time with Nic will be equally as wonderful! I am blessed to have such caring grandchildren!!
Wishing everyone a beautiful day!! Prayers to so many of our special OFF friends and families. We are so lucky to have found each other!!
Love and many hugs to all....connie d
Hello Vickie....I am so happy to hear how well things are going for Carrie!! You are right...youth is on her side!! I am praying your crossing the boarder goes quickly and all goes well with that. Also praying your flight home goes well. I am sure being home once again will feel just great!! I am sure you are missing the rest of your family...especially Butch! Benny's little hugs and kisses will feel wonderful too!!!
Lots of love and hugs ......connie d
Good morning Trish and everyone....
Trish....have fun with the boys this morning. Kids love to do puzzles...I am sure it will be a hit!
Debbie....what a fun day for you and Krissy!! Sounds like she is set for clothes and such for a while!!
Vickie....so glad Carrie is doing so well!! I am sure you will have a good day together doing whatever!!
I have more PT today. I am not so sure it is helping. Every night after I am done with PT I am in more pain. I discussed it with the PT. He had them back off some on the pool exercises. I still hurt last night and was up until 4:00 AM. I think it is flaring up my Fibro as I sure hurt all over. I see the PT this afternoon. I am going to discuss it with him further. I am still grateful for the nerve block as my back is sure better!!
I have no plans for the weekend....hoping to just have a relaxing time. I have a new puzzle I want to get started on....I love doing puzzles!
Wishing you all a wonderful day! Prayers for so many friends and families in need.
Love and hugs to all.....connie d
Good morning Carla and everyone....
Carla....so glad you made it home safely! I would love to have a Keurig...on my wish list....maybe one day!! My daughters have them. I sure enjoy the Keurig when I am there!!
Angie....not sure if we have met. Welcome to OFF....hope you join us more often. It looks like you are happily going along on your weigh loss journey!!
Vickie...I am praying all is going well for Carrie.
I have physical therapy and pool therapy today. It sure does wear me out but it feels good. I finally got my new modem so today I can hook that up. I am tired of this one shutting down all the time. I hope that fixes the problem!!!
Wishing you all a beautiful day!! Prayers for many in need here on Off.
Love and hugs to all.....conne d
Good morning Nancy and everyone......
Nancy....the weather is so crazy....rainy and cold and in the 60s yesterday...today is supposed to reach 90.....then back to 70s tomorrow. Not good for those of us that have arthritis and such. I pray the fruit farmers don't lose their crops. You are amazing handling those two women that are second guessing everything. I would politely say "well next year when you are in charge you can have it that way...for now this is the way I will be doing it".....you don't need things to be changing. This has gotten to be hard enough on you as it is. You truly are a patient and tolerant person.
Carolyn....I pray you have safe travels tomorrow on your way to Oregon. Where in Oregon will you be? My granddaughter lives in Troutdale right outside Portland. I have never heard of a appetizer party and to bring your mending. How fun...and a great idea!!
Trish.....SPRING.....what is that?? The weather is absolutely crazy!! I sure hope it all gets straightened out soon. We had such a long horrible winter. I need warmth now!! I think it would be a great idea to get a book about birds. I used to watch the birds and had a book. Of course that was when i had a home...LOL.
Yesterday was a busy day for me. I saw my psychiatrist...he claims I am quite sane...I just laughed. He said he wants me out of this house asap. He said it isn't good for my health or my mental health...I couldn't argue there! Still waiting for a call!!
I had to buy protein drinks yesterday. They were on sale so I bought 4/ 6 packs. I drink one a day in the morning as I can't eat that early. I bought 8/ 6 packs of my Glaceau Vitamin Water. No calories just fruit flavored...no artificial sweeteners and no carbonation. I drink one a day as a treat. It was on sale for $3.99....regularly $5.99 a 6 pack. I had to stock up. Then I had to go stock up on my calcium chewables. I bought 4 of them as they were on sale too. I stocked up on vitamins last month. I try to keep ahead of this as I don't ever want to run out. I am set for awhile!!
I plan on cleaning the bathrooms as my sister's is horrible as always. She just WON'T do it. I keep explaining it isn't healthy for either of us but she just lets it go. I finally told her I will HAVE to do it. That made her happy!! Can you spell LAZY...UGH!
I will spend the rest of the day relaxing and reading a new book my daughter gave me. I have heard so many good things about it.
Have a wonderful day everyone!! Prayers for so many in need.
Much love and lots of hugs to all...connie d
Good Morning Carla and everyone.....
Carla...so glad your friend is doing so well. I wish you safe travels on your way home!! HUGS!!!!
Debbie...Happy Birthday Krissy!!! You are so blessed...what an awesome Mother's Day gift is right!! Glad you had a great Mother's Day as well!!
Trish.....Frankie may become a comedian!! Happy to hear you got your new bible. Now watch and see the old one will turn up...always good to have a spare!! Glad your Mother's Day was so an awesome one!!
As for me....my Mother's Day was wonderful too!! Everything was perfect...we laughed and talked and had so much fun!! I got several wonderful gifts as well.Today I see my Psychiatrist to do a quick check in. He is just wonderful, We always have the best visits. I have had him as my doctor for many years!! I have several quick errands to run after the appointment. I also need to set up my sister's meds. That is about it for me. I feel pretty tired out today...I attribute it to the wonderful day yesterday...it is worth it!!
Wishing you all a beautiful day!!! Many, many in my prayers today for so many reasons.
Love and many hugs to all....connie d

Carolyn....I agree...I would so much rather eat at home. My daughter was going to take us out and I told her I would rather have something simple at home. You will all laugh....we all picked tacos/taco salad.....we are a strange group....it is just something easy that we all just love!!! We will have fresh fruit and Pam made a dessert!!

I had posted replies to everyone and then my computer went off line again. I will try to remember a few things I posted ...I don't mean to forget anyone....this will be the brief version.
Nancy...I agree with others...you go and enjoy that pool...the heck with the gossips! Sorry you are back on the med that gives you pain. Hoe that gets better soon.
Carolyn...glad to hear your CT scan and blood work has come back good!
Trish....have a wonderful dinner tonight with your family!! Sorry your pouch is hurting...I can't drink regular coffee either.
Cindi...glad you will be enjoying your garden soon.
Vickie...enjoy your garden and lovely backyard.
Eileen....glad you will be contacting you doctor about your pain.
I am am feeling better...had a long talk with my sister...not great but tolerable until I can move!! Not planning much today. Tomorrow I go to my daughters.....that will be fun!!
Wishing all a happy Mother's Day !! I may not have computer service tomorrow.
Have a great day everyone!! Prayers for many of our OFF sisters and families.
Love and hugs to all....connie d
Good morning Cindi and everyone....
Cindi....So glad you finally posted. Sorry you are having such a hard time. Glad everything was benign. I am sure your friends understood the melt down you had. You are dealing with so much right now. HUGS!!!
Vickie....I know you needed the rain....sorry the winds were so strong they caused damage to your plants and flag. So glad you are enjoying the YMCA!! I sure hope you can find a better deal on hearing aids too! How do you get in all your protein each day? I have to have protein every meal or I won't be getting the required 80 grams a day. I haven't had cereal or oatmeal for over 5 years. I am not allowed milk anyway...my surgeon says it is empty calories...I sure miss that too. Every now and then I buy a pint and sip on it here and there...YUM!
Debbie....I am so happy you are having such a great time with your quilting...good for you!
Karen...red is my color too. Your surgery is only a little time away now. I am so happy for you!! I am so jealous of all you ladies and all the crafting you do!!!
Eileen....keep warm and relax as long as you can before work today. Hope your night goes well!
Trish....so glad your mom loved her flowers...it sounds like it was a beautiful bouguet!!
I am having an okay day. Having problems with my internet service all week. A tech came out today. It is my modem just like I told them all week!! They are mailing me a new one. Praying it comes soon....by Monday anyway!! If I am not on for a few days then you know I lost my internet. I do get internet on my phone but is a lot harder to post on there. My back feels so good...I am so happy!!! I can walk and bend without pain....YAY!! I have an appointment soon with my Physical Therapist and my Pool Therapist....looking forward to that!!
Wishing you all a beautiful day!! Prayers for so many in need. Special requests as well.
Love and many hugs to all....connie d
Karen....I am praying for you to have a safe trip. Enjoy those little ones!! It sounds like you have a busy time planned!! The grandchildren can be tiring even with just one of them!! Guess I am getting old!!
My back feels so good today....now if they can do the same for my neck and than my Fibromyalgia went away..... I would feel great!!
Love and many hugs sweetie....connie d
Eileen....so glad you are feeling better today!! Hope you night goes well.
My back where they did the block doesn't hurt at all now...woooohooo!! Now if the Fibro would settle down I would be doing good! I am sure you are feeling it too!!
I have to ask you again...when you had the nerve block did you do it with just numbing the area or did you get put to sleep??
Love and hugs...connie d
Hi Debbie...we must have been posting at the same time.
I am sure Krissy will have fun picking out the boarders and backing for her quilt. I hope to one day see a picture of your log cabin quilt when it is done. It sounds wonderful!!
Sorry about the slimes....wish that happened to me!! I am really going to try hard to get back to basics. My summer clothes are all too tight. I will not by larger clothes!!
Have a wonderful day!!
Love and hugs....connie d
Good morning Trish and everyone.....
Trish....glad you got your cartridges and all the other things on your list. You had a busy day yesterday! Glad you are getting your mammogram and bone scan done....good luck!! I am sure the grandchildren loved having you with them this morning....they love having you near!!
Vickie....I love that book Outlander...I two have read it more then once!! I am guilty of staying up reading late to. It doesn't matter for me as I have no set time to get up. Hope the weather holds and you can get your windows washed!! I laughed about your comment about the drought!! I hope Butch appointment went well. I can't wait to see your cute little Chest...a pic would be nice.
As for me.....I can't believe how much better my back feels today....it is so much better!! Now if they can figure out the rest ...I will be feeling great!! I can't wait to be able to take my walks again!!! My sister calmed down and even half heartedly apologized. I am not sure how sincere it was as she needed me to figure out that mess of a checkbook for her this morning!! I keep praying some place opens up soon!!
Today I am planning on resting up after all my appointments this week. I have a good book to read and can't wait to get back to it! I have pool therapy and see my physical therapist tomorrow.
Wishing you all a beautiful day!! Prayers for many of our OFF friends and families.
Love and lots of hugs to all...connie d
