Sally, your quilt is perfect. A happy holiday red without being so much that it can be used all year. And thank you for your daddy's idea! He should have marketed them! Since the back feet stay on, I only need to attach the front booties with a string across the back. It's good to have smart friends!

Oh, Barb! I feel so bad for you. Mine was caught right away because the dentist caused the problem when he was was replacing a crown. He shattered the tooth so there was no infection to deal with. I want a magic wand for Christmas so I can eliminate pain in the world. Except for people who inflict pain. I want the pain to be reversed and felt by the perpetrator...heh heh.

Yesterday was "national chocolate day". I had already had my piece of dark chocolate so I reached in the Christmas boxes and gave DH some See's bridge mix. He was a very happy camper all evening long.

Michelle, got my fingers crossed that this specialist can solve the problem. If I get that magic wand, I'll waive it in your direction. Also hope your DD is doing better.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

I have one more border run and then I can start working on the backside .. now that I have an idea the size that this will stop growing .. lol lol ....



(yes ..the squares ARE SUPPOSED to be offset .. that was planned not a booboo .. lol)

Today I will work on ironing it out, and putting on a gold marbled border .. (the red is the edge of what I have for now .. until later .. :) ) and then the final border will be in the red .. (that's the only color I will have left ... lol) THEN I can work on the backside .. I'll find out how much material I will need .. :)

So -- moral of the story .. is I had a wonderful time !!!! I got 98% of my Christmas cards ready to go out .. hubby took them this morning .. :) and I got to work on my quilt ..

I told hubby that I have until the end of December to finish it .. and if I can stick with it .. that won't be a challenge, but Julie's birthday is early January .. and I want it done for that .. :) Well -- before that .. because I have 2 more birthday cards I want to finish for work .. they aren't on "contract", but they will finish the staff .. :) Kim's birthday is early January, and the other Kim's birthday is in May .. which I thought would be a nice thing to have a card sent to her with everyone signing it .. :)

So -- between that, and other things I want to do in the month of December .. I am hopefully going to have a busy month .. therefore I want to make sure all my gottado's (only brought on by myself) are done in a timely manner .. :)



With that being said .. hoping everyone has a great day .. and you enjoy everything you do !!!!

Michelle: Glad your ENT appt. is Monday.

Have a good time @ your luncheon!

Sally: Glad you had such a great day!

Hope you find out how to do what you want for your quilt!

Will try to stay out of trouble! Sooooooo hard!!

Wow! Good for you on being 98% done w/your Christmas cards.

Glad you’re enjoying the holidays.

Phyllis: OH I can never do anything just ˝ way. Usually this type of tooth problem causes an abscess and swelling by the affected tooth and the jaw in that area. NOPE had none of that. MY tooth was eating itself away on the inside, and the process was starting right by the nerve. So, after a course of antibiotic didn’t completely remove the problem we decided time to do the root canal. Turns out the tooth had a HUGE abscess INSIDE, which doesn’t show up on x-ray. Long story short, it took 2 visits to clean out the tooth. Now the last visit will be to patch up the tooth and live on. Part of the problem, the dentist figures, is having Hashimoto’s (autoimmune disease), the body wasn’t recognizing the tooth as MINE, so was destroying it. Only in my mouth, I tell ya!

Hope Killer gets used to those booties.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Phyllis ...dont know if it would make a difference but daddy rigged up a system for Hoot's front booties so it was like kids with their mittens ... he created a suspender system that went over Hoot's shoulders and loosly hold up her booties. When he did the back feet, he connected the front to the back over her back (because her tail wasnt always up to hold the back suspenders...lol) The suspenders were just tight enough to hold up the booties but not affect her stride ....

Got my Christmas (98%) cards done and ready to be sent ...and am planning a coffee chat with one of my SIL's ...just waiting until after this weekend .. now that Im feeling better, and Im starting to get i to the "holiday season" I even figured out what we could have for our Chrismas dinner for when mom comes over ....but thats about a month away...Im going to enjoy this holiday season... thr first in years that Im not overstressed with yearend, and work and family obligations...andandand so Im creating my holiday plans .. a very strange feeling....

Talk later ... my material is dry now ....time to start playing .........

Yup, like the t-shirt said "that's a terrible idea. What time?"
Glad Michelle got some SLEEP!
Barb, hope you are tolerating the procedure. I was really lucky with mine, and it did not involve three visits...And old curse I once heard was "may you have an unnecessary root canal" Glad at least yours was necessary.
Sally...ah...sounds like you are in a good place and having the challenge of the quilt design just makes it perfect.
I have still not invaded the Christmas chocolates, even though I got enough so that I could. If I stay on track, I will share some on Christmas eve when my brother and his wife visit.
I got the drive half shoveled this morning. If it was going to snow, it could at least have been enough for the lawn people to plow it! And I put booties on Killer's back feet so he can get used to them. Because of the knee joint they tend to stay on better in back. Work in progress. Now that he has more freedom on his walks I think the walker and he will do fine.

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Michelle .. happy to hear that you had a good day, and YAY on your lunch with the company president .. :) Enjoy !!!

Yesterday was the best of days !!!! I got my nails done, I got my necklaces for my Puff pendant, and I got my red material. I met up with hubby and had a wonderful afternoon, doing a mall walk, and lunch .. What better of a day could one ask for .. :)

Today, I don't want to leave . our ground is dotted with snow, but not bad, and hubby is out for his mall walk .. I threw my material up in the washer to get the stiffness out, and while that's in the dryer, I'm going to start my Christmas cards .. :) I got my addresses together last night when we got home, and while I still need some of hubby's friends; I have most of what I need to at least get started ... :)

I want to work on my quilt today .. Keep your fingers crossed .. I hope my idea works .. I'm kinda stymied, and have been doing studying on line, to get what I want it to do .. lol .. wish me luck .. lol lol ..

Hope everyone has a great day .. and heck ..

Finally got a good nights sleep last night. I went to bed at 7:30. I was beyond done!

ENT appointment is scheduled for Monday. So glad I don’t have to wait long.

Insurance is going up $80 a month for our PPO plan. Going to a meeting this afternoon to talk about the HSA plan. Need to explore all options.

It’s my birthday month, so today I have lunch with the company’s president. We are having sub sandwiches from Erberts & Gerberts.

Have a great day!

Sally: glad you got your nails done! Sounds like you had a good day.

The tooth felt like it got drilled by an industrial sized bit when I got home around 10 am, but does feel better now. One more visit to go through next Tuesday. Tonight it feels much better. Fingers crossed that the appt. on Tuesday will be the last one.

Have a great evening.

Good evening ..

Had a wonderful day ...I started out with getting my nails cleaned up .. they are sparkly Christmas red. And just had a wonderful time. This place really makes you feel like a spa ... they take thier time, and they are gentle with the drummel ... and then they massage your arm and hand when they are finished .... I was talking to the owner, and told him how much I appreciated coming there because they treat me so well ...

From there I went to Joanns, and got my material I needed at 15% off ...WOOHOO !!!! And then I drove to Kohls on 83, and just as I was walking in the store hubby texted me. I told him if he would wait for me, I would go to the mall with him. I found a couple of silver necklace chains ... 1 18 inch and 1 16 inch ... I wanted some shorter chains for my Puff pendant ... now I have them, and got them with super coupons as well .. by the time I was done, they costed me $2.50ish. I was very proud if my purchase ...lol and they are pretty ...

I came home and hubby was home .. we went to BK for a couple of burgers and fries ...(one each) and then went to Southridge and walked...

Hubby was frustrated, because I got called in to do a food survey again ... got paid $5 ... WOOHOO!! And hubby always wants to do the surveys ...I told him Im the first one to walk through, because he walks the parameter of the big stores as well...lol lol

So after 5900 steps we came home ...and now Im comfy . What a fun day!!!!

Craz ... oooo feel better with your root canal .. I hope it heals fast.

Phyllis ... the walker should figure out how to get Killer to come out and accept her ... keep hope alive ...

Talk later ... hope everyone had a great day ....

Wednesday – shades of déjŕ vu – dentist this morning for part 2 of the root canal. **SIGH** Early Christmas present, I guess.

Cold, cold, cold, cold, cold. BRRRrrrrr. Have to move quickly not to freeze in place just getting the mail!

Otherwise, after I get home from the dentist, am going to relax a little!

HUGS and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sally: Glad you’re feeling like yourself again!

Awwwww, That’s sweet that Grandpa Teddybear is filling Uli in on Christmas!!!

Hmmmmm. . . Uli was just helping checking the lights! LOLOL

Hope you had a good time getting the nails cleaned up and going to Kohls.

Phyllis: Yes Jas is back @ work.

Uhoh, hope Killer gets used to walking w/the walker!

Yes, we have sun today too. Still cold, but LOOKS pretty.

Greetings,
Barb, does the roads clear mean Jas is gone again? Boo hoo. These guys are so nice to have around.
Sally, glad you got over the bug and are able to keep up with your two rascals. Fun pics.

Killer is not liking taking his walks without Mama. He goes, and it works out, but Monday he hid under my desk when she came for him. So I asked her to walk him separate so he can go at his own pace. Once he figures out he doesn't have to share her, maybe he will be less reluctant... If this doesn't work out he won't get walks at all in winter. Spoiled kids.

I am holding ground weight wise. If all the chocolates get wrapped for Christmas gifts, maybe I can get back on the healthy train. Less than a month til Christmas. I can hang on that long. Then the sun comes back!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Mel helped me last night again .. but I don't have the fog that I had the last time he helped me .. I think I'm over whatever kicked me down .. because I feel so energetic and feel so great, that I don't know what to do with myself .. lol lol lol ..

Uli gave in to his curiosity yesterday .. the Ulicam revealed impish behavior ..Grampa Teddybear is having a talk with him .. It might be his and TD's first Christmas, but Grampa has been through AT LEAST 25 .. he can tell them stories .. hope they listen .. lol ..



found my basket of pine cones ..



He said he was checking the lights, because he knows I had problems with them .. *sigh* ..



Grampa having another talk with them .. lol lol lol ..

Today I'm heading out to get my nails cleaned up, and then want to stop at Kohls .. hubby gave me some coupons, but I just want to browse .. and I want to stop at Joanne Fabrics to get some more red material .. I think I have an idea for my quilt .. and ran out of red fabric .. :)

The sun is out, and while it's cold out, I have my energy back, and feel GREAT .. the greatest I've felt since I got back from vacation .. whatever it was, isn't anymore .. :) Lookout world !!!!

Talk later all .. Need to get myself put together, and get myself going .. Have a great day !!! I'm going to !!!!!

Good afternoon ..

Had a fun day, and everything "behaved" .. I wasn't that interested in playing, but played for about an hour and then hunted hubby down to go get lunch .. After lunch we played our free money, and well -- I actually had "allowance" to give back to him .. It just felt good to get out of the house .. after not being able to go too far away from the restroom .. :)

I told hubby when he was asking me concerned .. I told him I knew exactly where my problems came from .. We had been on such overdrive during vacation, I knew exhaustion was just around the corner (but I was foolish because I was having such a good time (most times)) and then while my immune system was just hanging on I walk into a germ infested tube called an airplane .. so that was my response to that .. that's all .. I'm happy to say that today went off without a hitch ... :) and I enjoyed myself .. :)

Tomorrow I'm going to take some time and get my nails cleaned up .. and I don't have to go over to mom's .. because Ceile found a cable for her phone .. and it's charging now .. I told her that we could put together a card for her purse on Sunday when I get there, and we'd make sure that she knew how to use the phone .. but I'm getting my nails cleaned up.. :)

Hope everyone is having a great day !!! :) I am !!!

Tuesday – Well, the storm missed us, but walloped those areas south of us. A couple of my friends in IL got up to a foot or more of snow. Hope the roads are cleared!

Have an early morning dental appointment. Oh joy!

Well, hope it’s a terrific Tuesday.

HUGS

Michelle: good you have a referral to another ENT. And very wise to have DH go with you for support.

Sally: Travel safely! Glad you got sleep w/o Mel A. Tonin!

Phyllis: Yes, south really did get toally creamed.

Yes, the route that Jas takes to work in IL really got creamed as well. But roads are all right today.

Ok, have a good day, ladies!

Good morning all.
We got NO snow while everyone south of us got creamed. But then the next night, when it was not predicted, we had gentle flakes all night. Still not enough to show except in rare spots this morning. But I am in no hurry. I know we are due.

Our garage outlets were not working so we had the electrician in today to get them going. So happy they could come out right away so we can have Christmas lights. I could do without them, but DH still thinks it is worth the trouble. Besides, he got a deal on new lights at Shopko. I'll pretend it wasn't because it was easier to buy new than try to relocate the rest in the mess that is the basement.

Phyllis - You'll be glad to read below.....

Sally - Your tree looks beautiful! Ours goes up this weekend.

Barb - Glad hubby could stay home with the bad roads!

Appointment went well, and I think the Dr and I are in agreement. He put me on Singulair to treat a possible allergy. But, he has referred me to an ENT. I agreed, as long as I see a different one. I've seen the last one twice in 7 years, and get no results from him. So, it's in the notes with a name of a different doctor. I probably won't hear anything for a couple of days, and I asked hubby to go with. I want his support to help me get across to the doctor how miserable and worse this is getting.

It was a very long day..... For some reason, I just could not sleep last night. According to my Fitbit, I slept less than two hours. But, got up and walked this morning. I couldn't sleep anyway....LOL

Pat - Hope your husband's tooth stays pain free until he can be seen!

Tonight's meal with a Chicken Bruschetta Bake. So yummy, and so easy! With a side of the smashed butternut squash I made for Thanksgiving!

Monday – Well we ended up w/just a dusting, BUT areas south of us are getting slammed w/8-15 in. of the white stuff, blizzard warning. So, seems like the roads Jas would need to travel are snow packed. That means Jas is working from home. THAT is good.

Hugs and stay safe. Have a good Monday.

Michelle: Yes, DH’s are just grown up little boys sometimes! LOL Jas loves his hot cocoa!

Glad you are feeling at least a little better.

YES YES YES. I feel sorry for those who got socked in w/snow but . . . glad we didn’t!

Phyllis: I think you’re right about seeing an ENT.

Hallelujah – no itchies!!!!

Sally: Yup. NO snowball fights . . . YET! Mwahahahha!

That Mel . . . quite a guy, isn’t he! Glad you got sleep!

Glad you and your Mom talked.

Have fun putting up the tree!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Phyllis .. So happy that you may have found the solution to your problem ... WOOHOO !!!! We're all here ... and we're a team !!!! :) So glad your feeling better .. :)

Michelle ... Happy to hear there is a bit of an ease on your headaches, and your energy is back a bit .. :)

Craz .. *sad face* ... looks like no snowball fight today .. I was so looking forward to that !!! *SHUCKS* !!!!!!

From all the noise last night it sounded like the ground would be a mess this morning; but nope ..

I'm happy to say that I got a full night sleep .. albiet with help .. from Mel A Tonin .. He does wonders .. I haven't taken many of them, and looked at the directions .. "only 1 ?? they're sooo tiny" .. okaaaayyy .. (no .. the last time I took one was when I was still working .. I'm actually afraid of sleep aids) I don't remember much of anything last night, with the exception of getting up once in the middle of the night ..

Hubby wanted to go on a road trip today, and I told him no .. he kept pushing I told him no .. finally I told him I had plans for today .. (I want to work on my tree) and still don't feel comfortable for long road trips yet .. I also want to restart working on my quilt .. especially if I want to give it to Julie for her birthday in January .. but that's for later ..

He left for Wii bowling, and told me he would go to the mall to get his steps .. I've been sitting for the last 3 days .. I think the exercise of putting up the tree, will do me good .. and bring back the energy (safely) that I'm missing right now ..

I'm happy that mom called and we cleared the air yesterday .. I told her I wasn't mad, but I was concerned and scared .. but thankfully by the grace of God her luck prevailed .. and nothing happened .. :)

I figured this week I would stop by and pick up her cellphone to get a charging cord for it .. I might even have cords ... and we can figure out what numbers she wants on her card that she will carry ..

So -- with that being said, I'm heading downstairs and bring out my muscles to bring up the stuff for putting up the tree .. I'm actually looking forward to it !!!! :)

Talk later !!!! :) and hope everyone has a great day !!!! I'm planning on it !!!! :)

Good morning Michelle! Yes, walking in the morning is a nice waker upper, too. Has your doctor taken a look at your sinus' with a scope that goes up? My ENT guy has a great tool where he can see into the sinus cavity and actually remove bits of detritus. Maybe you need to see a specialist. How long has this been going on? two years? Good luck.

Thank you ladies for all the great advice!!! I woke up this morning with NO itchies. As I was getting dressed there was one spot on my leg, but I had not put lotion there. I need to rewash the things that have been getting the new detergent. Today is busy so I will do that tomorrow. So nice to have such an easy solution. You all are a treasure!

Sally - So glad your Mom called and you talked. Such a relief to the mind.

Barb - I make hot cocoa for my hubby too!

Phyllis - Hope the itchies leave soon!

Had a bit more energy today, but still needed a nap. Ate what I should, and not what I want today :) And I am making myself walk in the mornings. Evenings just are too short.

Tomorrow is my follow up with my Dr. Hopefully, we can agree on some kind of treatment. I still think it is my frontal sinuses that do not drain. The steroids helped a lot, but when I stopped taking them......

Made a beef and potato casserole in the crockpot for dinner tonight. It was yummy and perfect for this dreary damp day! But, glad we are not getting the snow that is hitting the southern part of the state. Stay safe and warm!

Sally: Well that's good that Celie had the talk w/your Mom!!! Good grief, she's been so good to your Mom, I certainly would feel awful that she's worrying about being sued if anything happened to your Mom when she was caring for her.

Hope your tummy feel better!

Just got off the phone with mom ... she called back and asked if I didnt come over because of her antics yesterday ...I said no .. between the threat of weather and my overactive backside, staying home was safer ...

She asked if her story yesterday upset me ... I said without hesitation YES... evidentally (thank God for Ceile) Ceile came over and explained the facts of life to her .. and thats what opened moms eyes ...

Thank goodness but Ceile explained about carrying her phone, and Intold her I would make up a card with mine, hubby's and Ceiles numbers on ...that she can just keep in her wallet ...theres nothing to using the phone .. its a flip phone .. just open it up, push the numbers and hit OK and the call goes through ...

Sounds like Ceile got as much sleep as I did last night, and revealed that she doesnt mind helping mom because their friends but if something should happen to mom under Ceile's care, my SIL would sue ... I told mom, that wouldnt happen, because if my brother didnt find his cahoonas, I would ...lol lol Ceile has been such a help and a wonderful friend to mom, that I would hate for her to start being scared to help because of that ...

Im glad it's out, between that, not feeling well, and then what I feel a jealous sarcastic remark on my blog ... I think today is just catching up on me ...

She still had the excuses trying to cover her butt, but you could hear in her voice she understood ...

As for my belly ... so far so good on 7up today and maybe ...just maybe ...this will settle down soon .. Tomorrow Im still hoping to start on the tree ...

Sunday – Rain changing to snow. ACK

Had a nice breakfast yesterday morning. That was a treat!

Today I guess I’ll be in charge of making the hot cocoa for Jas as he shovels.

HUGS and blessings.

Michelle: So sorry to hear that you’re still battling a sinus headache. Hope you get some relief.

Sally: OH . . . MY . . . STARS!!!!!!!!! Lord have mercy. Sooooooo many things could have gone wrong in that scenario! My hair is gray right with you!

Well, I don’t know that I’d wait for the topic to come up. I’d get a notebook w/the phone #’s she needs, put it in her purse and She NEEDS to carry her cell phone! This is one time when Daddytude will serve a purpose, IMHO! Of course you need your Mom, but you need her to be safe, as well!

Uh oh. Sorry you’re still not feeling well!!!! Hope you feel better quick!

Yes, everyone, be careful out there! Looks like we’re in for some snow!

HUGS

Sally, good choice. With being cooped up on a plane with lots of other people and being exposed to so much in the casinos, no telling what you got from where. Stay home and get well and keep "mom" well. Sounds like she may have had "nervous laughter" since she was guilty of so many mistakes. Starting with the wrong day and then not staying and waiting for her friend and on and on and on. I am sure that is what is bothering you. So concerned for her. You may want to think about having her move in with you in the not too distant future.

Barb, glad you got your Saturday breakfast. Now we sit and wait to see how far north the snow is going to be. They changed our prediction from 6 inches to less than one. Again. And thanks for all the advice on the itchies. I think we can eliminate bed bugs. I have been on alert for them ever since they reappeared in the US. But DH is going to have a chance to repay me for all the times I moisturized his back for him.

Michelle, nice that you get to shop for Christmas toys for awhile yet. The hunt is such fun. Hope you get a handle on those headaches. That is no way to go through life.

I think I have my Christmas shopping done. Now I wait for the mail to arrive and wrap everything. Nobody needs anything so it is all just little dumb things so there is something to open.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Mommy story below .. *sigh* ..

Didn't get a good night sleep last night again, have been pretty much awake since 2ish .. woke up and brain wouldn't shut off .. (thinking about mommy story) ..

Still having problems that are not taking me far away from restrooms .. Hubby took me to Red Robin for lunch actually Lupper .. (3:00 pm) and we stopped at Meijer, where I picked up some cole slaw mix, mush mush's, and celery; AND BIOFREEZE SPRAY !!! I cooked up my pork tenderloin yesterday and it looks absolutely YUMMMMMMMMMY !!! and I cooked up some hard boiled eggs .. We picked up some tomatoes and nanners .. so now we have some real food around here again ..

Yup -- some bug has bit me .. I don't know .. It coordinates with the Turkey burger I had when we came home before bed from TGI Fridays .. (keep thinking about the piece of lettuce that's on it) or if I just caught a bug ... but thankfully it's happened now instead of on the way TO vacation .. lol .. Last night my belly was raw, so I took a swig of Mylanta and my belly feels better, (but the rest is still there .... *sigh* ) ..

My visit with mom may be a short one today; because of the incoming snow .. We picked up her gallon of milk that she asked for .. and I'll take that over .. and even though I'm upset with her .. I still need my mommy fix ..

So --- wishing everyone a great day ... and we'll talk later !!!!!

Mommy story ...aka why Sally has grey hair ....

Mom called me and couldnt stop laughing ...her neighbor Ceile toom her to her nail appointment only to find out it is next Saturday. They offered to do them because they accept walkins, but the person they wanted to give mom was the one she doesnt like.so she declined.

She went down to the restaurant at the end of the strip mall and asked to use the phone to call Ceile ... but she wasnt home ...(probably ran some errands because nail appointments take from 45 minutes to an hour) So mom decoded to head toward her bank to use the phone there .. only to discover that it was after 12 and the bank was closed.

So (this is where the grey hair comes in) she starts flagging down passing by cars .... (she's wondering why Im not laughing with her)

2 didnt stop, but the 3rd one stopped, thankfully it was an honest young girl. Mom asked her to call the police ... the girl did that, and the police came and took mom home ... only after sitting and "arguing with the girl, because the girl offered to take mom home as well"

(She's wondering why Im still not laughing with her) I asked her why she didnt call me or hubby...and her reply was "she doesnt know our "new" phone numbers (hubby has had his number for 35 years and I've had mine since 1980's) I told her this was a perfect reason she should carry her cell around (shes got a simple flip phone) and she gave another excuse of "dont know how to use it" ( she's only had it since daddy passed in 2005).

Then I told her that she should keep a little notebook in her purse with our numbers....her response was "I thought you and "hubby" would be in the Dells" ... I told her that HE was but I was at home and he would have just gotten a hold of me
. And matter closed ...

She's the one before I left telling me to be careful and dont do anything foolish ... dont think shes going to enjoy the earful shes going to get tomorrow if the subject comes up ... and then she pulls something stupid like this ... She could have just sat and waited and Ceile would have picked her up within an hour..

Im a little bit irritated with my mother's choices this time, and Im still not giggling..... wish me luck tomorrow to keep my daddytude pressed down ....

Barb - Hlad your articles are done!!

Phyllis - Good luck! My guess would be detergents too.

Sally - Glad you did your exercises!

Spent Black Friday helping my daughter put up her mosaic yikes for the kitchen back splash. It really is beautiful. Can’t wait to see the end result after the grouting is done! I checked out the Mattel store, but nothing jumped out at me. So, I have my ideas. I’ll just buy when I see it.

Today, hubby and I were lazy bums.... Lol. I took a walk this morning on the treadmill, but haven’t done much since. We didn’t even dress for the day....Lol I did some laundry, and portioned Thanksgiving leftovers for the freezer.

Sinus headache was pretty bad today, but I just took it easy and took a nap. Tomorrow is grocery shopping and finishing laundry.

I have been eating really bad lately. Time to do what needs to be done. And I do feel better when I eat better. I struggle so bad when I feel awful. I just don’t put forth the energy to eat right, even though I know I would feel better.

I agree with Craz on her assessments of the mattress caper ... I have problems with the fungus a mongus, and have an ointment from the doctor for that but try and keep the area dry... another heavy duty lotion is Eucerin .. I use that when my skin gets dry ... but from the description that Phyllis gave, my guess would be detergent or softener change ... Theres also a lotion that I use during the drier weather by Jergins that you put on right in the shower before you dry off ... That works well for me as well ....good luck in your experiments ..

Oooo biofreeze in a spray ... that might be what Im looking for, because rubbing into my back, is kinda hard when movement is tough to begin with ...lol

I feel better and have a mommy story that I'll tell you later when I can wrap my brain around it ...*sigh* yup its a doozie ...

On our way to Red Robin for my birthday dinner ... and I have my Christmas tree pulled out and ready to come upstairs ...WOOHOO!!! Thats my Monday exercise )!!!

Saturday – Had a productive day. FINISHED MY ARTICLES! Doing the major happy dance about that.

Had leftovers last night and one more round tonight. Was so glad that the kids liked the food! Shoulda gotten a bigger turkey. Now I know.

Raining out, and ugly. Sheesh!

Otherwise it’s Saturday, so that means . . . breakfast date! Hurray!

Hugs and enjoy Saturday.

Phyllis: Idea #1 is the same as Sally’s – you may be allergic to the laundry detergent or fabric softener you use. Arm & Hammer has a laundry detergent that’s good. OR look for one that has no added anything. It’ll say on the label.

Second thing, I would recommend using Aveeno lotion. It is extremely soothing. 2nd choice would be Gold Bond healing lotion.

Third, sometimes a fungal infection can develop in the folds of the skin, but seems like that may have shown up earlier.

Fourth, this is gonna gross you out, but have you checked your mattress for bed bugs???? What you’re describing w/your skin doesn’t necessarily sound like it, but just sayin’ check that possibility. You have to look for those critters in the crevices of the mattress. Those critters bite, so sometimes you’ll even see some tiny dots of blood on the linens.

Last, but not least, DO keep your skin clean and dry.

Ok, off the soap box on that one. Oh, and if it is just plain ol’ dry skin, Aveeno will help w/that too (or Gold Bond healing).

Sally: On ho on the back pain. You’re right to start slowly and build up on those exercises.

They have BioFreeze spray and ointment @ Costco (have to admit, I didn’t pay attention to the price) but might be worth price comparison.

Thank you Sally!! Yes, I did change detergents. It said for sensitive skin, but who knows what they put in. I LOVE YOU! So I will have to make a shopping trip before my next load. I have to go anyway to try to find treats for Killer. He is out of some of his favorites and everyone is out online, too. I couldn't get any at the store Wednesday and was hoping there was some online. He hasn't been eating again lately so I miss having one of the two things he WOULD eat. No worry. He does this from time to time. Something will perk his appetite. Last time it was a fresh cucumber. I'll see if he wants to share an apple.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Phyllis .. yes .. everything looks much closer than it really is .. lol lol .. In regards to your question .. did you change laundry soap, or fabric softener ?? I know that happens to me sometimes, but I've got sensitive skin to begin with .. I can't imagine it's from your mattress ??

I'm back to square one on my back again .. but I did my PT exercises last night, and this morning .. even though it was back to basics .. I'll get back to more advanced again .. lol ..

Yesterday I was pretty much a slug .. I did get all but one load of laundry done, and slept alot .. Last night's sleep was broken up again .. but that will come back to normal as my activity level goes up ..

Today I want to go downstairs and see if my "middle" tree is available without having to rearrange the entire basement .. If so, I'll set my sights on Monday putting up my tree .. :)

I think tomorrow I'm going to pick up a full size tube/container of biofreeze .. that has been a Godsent; and I'm using it this morning as well, because my back was in really bad shape when I got up .. but I honestly think it's because I was a slug yesterday .. so on my way over to mom's tomorrow, I'm going to stop at Walgreens and pick up some biofreeze .. :)

Hubby is off on one of his "free money runs" .. I just am not ready to visit casinos, and don't want to go if it's not going to be fun .. sooooo I stayed home, and will clean up my kitchen from last night (yup -- even too much of a slug for that) .. I finished my last load of laundry; and check my tree downstairs .. I pulled out a pork tenderloin yesterday and it should be ready to be made up today .. so we actually have REAL food around here .. :)

So -- wishing everyone a great day ... I am planning on it .. :) (biofreeze rubbed in this morning is starting to work .. lol) ...

Have a great day !!!!

I never measured the steps when we went to Vegas, but I know it is always lots of walking. My mom used to say, "everything looks closer than it is in the desert."
I have a question. Lately, when I get up, every place there was a wrinkle in my nighty or my sheets I have a red mark and ITCH. My mattress is too firm, but I have had the same mattress for a year and this just started. Is it dry skin or do I need a softer bed? Any suggestions?

Sally: My DS and his family can pack it in!!!

Glad you slept. Your body needed that!

Good for you for resuming your PT exercises at your own pace.

So glad you came home to a working furnace! PHEW.

Rest up!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

*wiping up drool after reading everyone's menus* ...
Craz .. Awww no leftovers ?? that's the BESTEST part !!!!

Phyllis .. your hubby's dressing/stuffing sounds wonderful !!! :)

I slept like the dead last night .. but my eyeballs popped open at the time when I would have gotten up .. but fell back asleep (Vegas is 2 hours earlier than us) .. and finally dragged myself out of bed at 10:30 this morning.. Then by the time I got my pictures transferred from our phones to my computer and reduced so I could post them on here .. it was almost 11:30 .. I feel like a mack truck rolled over me; but it's only because I slept sooo hard ... and sooo long ..

I will resume my PT exercises tonight .. with all the ouchies my body was going through this morning, I didn't want to push myself .. I know I will be starting over with the beginning exercises; and by tonight I will be a little more limber .. lol

Before bed last night, I rubbed in lotion all over the place, because my skin took a beating while we were in the middle of the desert .. lol lol lol ... and it's better this morning !!!! lol

My story is in my blog .. and pictures .. lotsa pictures .. :) and I only touched on the surface .. oh my goodness it was such a wonderful time !!!! I walked 199,995 steps, and 86.92 miles ... I would like to figure out "where" I walked to !!!

Oh yea .. and WE HAVE A WORKING FURNACE!!!!! lol

With that being said .. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and well -- happy leftover day !!!! :) and talk later !!! Gotta get my laundry started .. :)

Friday – Had a wonderful time w/the family yesterday. Not many leftovers. Did send the kids home w/a “care package”

Had turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, cranberries, olives, sweet potatoes, biscuits and DIL brought mashed potatoes, greens, deviled eggs and a cake. Had a pumpkin pie, too, but everyone was more interested in the cake, which is fine! Oh and we had a spinach salad. NO shortage of food! It was just fun and laughs having them here. Rylund sang a few songs he learned in kindergarten. Adorable (of course, right!?!)

Today is a chill day and getting the house back in order.

Sally: Welcome home!

Phyllis: Sounds like you had a great feast that your DH prepared! Nice.

HUGS

Welcome home Sally.
DH tried something new with half of his stuffing this year. Or do I call it dressing because it never saw the inside of a bird? At any rate, he added three kinds of nuts and apple and dried cranberries... he didn't need to serve anything else! Even though, of course, he did. I skipped lunch after a light breakfast so I was ready for our early dinner and didn't go over my food for the day. Also, did not get hungry during the evening. So we had stuffing, turkey loaf, cranberry sauce, and Brussels sprouts. All Killer would eat is part of a Brussels sprout. He has to ask to try everything. Then after he scoffs at it, he leaves me alone. If he were an "eater" I wouldn't be able to spoil him like I do.

emoticon Happy turkey day. Michelle, you made me take a double take. I saw your note that your would brine the turkey and I read it as "burn" the turkey. These old eyes aren't what they were. I'm sure your bird is perfect.
DH is fixing a turkey loaf this year. He is so happy at discovering it, I didn't tell him that is what I used to fix for my son and I when it was just the two of us. But he is still fixing his from scratch stuffing that he is so proud of. We do eat well around here.
I forgot to put Killer's booties on today, but we are not expecting snow until Sunday so I have Saturday to try them out. He is pretty tolerant, but the ones I tried to make for him out of baby socks and velcro just fell off him after we walked a block. I have to get over my fear of making them too tight.

So with that being said you wont hear from me until tonight...

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving ....enjoy your turkey, and your families ....Tomorrow (if I remember to plug in my computer at home) will be a normal posting day .. I get to just take care of what I want to, and he's already doing homework for his black Friday shopping ...(ugh ..he can have it!) Lol lol

Decent day st work, and had an oil change done after work. I’ll start brining the turkey soon. We plan on eating around 4 tomorrow, so no rush.

No steroids today, and I felt the difference. I felt the stuffy congestion build up as the day went on. So, I do believe it is an inflammation issue. But, I have a follow up on Monday. We will see what he has to say.

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your families!

Michelle
