Good Morning wonderful ladies

Uniflame, I am so sorry that there is such a technological challenge with getting the DVD's to you. Do you know someone in Canada or the States that could mail it for you personally and then it might be cheaper? I am not sure how all that works. We have sent things to Germany, but don't remember having problems with the DVD thing as my hubby's relative had the same system we did. I thought that SparkPeople had exercise routines you could do right from their website. Not sure, but I will check into it.

Amanda and Georgia, thank you. It is been rough with the loss of my brother Jeff and just all the family dynamics that already existed. I really just want to get back to a routine and move on with life.

Amanda, I don't envy your very hot weather. I hate the heat!! I hope you are able to stay cool!

And I agree..Jennifer, Andi, we really miss you!! Come back to the Cafe and sit with us for awhile.

Uniflame (Cynni, I think) I am so sorry for all that you are going through. You did very well with still having your boyfriends party. We have to go on with life and embrace the good. It helps us through the really rough times. I understand what you are saying about being Aspie and changing things around. the past couple of weeks have been so hard with all the people and relational issues that I am so exhausted after that and the passing of my brother. The sensory overload and expectations are just over the top for me and I am sure for you too.

Dee, thanks! Love ya! Amy and Jeanine, love ya too!

Well, I need to get back on track with eating and exercise. It is so hot and humid here lately and that just doesn't help. I didn't eat well at all the past week...hardly ate! Then after the funeral I think my body just wanted to eat and so I did and chocolate has enter my body way too many times! So I am back on track and ready to get this weight off for good.

Hugs to all, Cathy

I am always having trouble figuring out how many degrees 96 is? The hottest we have it here is like 35 and that is only some days a year, if any.

Yesterday I wanted to order in the spark cardio DVD but sadly shipping to the Netherlands is insane! And also we have DVD region 2 code. So I guess there is no way for me to get it. Unless I can get it to work on my computer for some reason but I don't see how since the DVD player in the computer is also region 2. Sometimes I dislike it that sparkpeople is so oriented on America. There are more people out there, go international :)

Sending some coll air for those suffering with the heat.

Cynni You did right in having the party.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Thank you so much everyone for your kind wishes and support.
It was good to get through the wake, funeral and reception yesterday. It was the first time I ate any amount of food, but definitely not all the right things.
Now I need to get back on my healthy eating.

The service was fine, but it was so hard to say goodbye. I still can't believe I said goodbye to my 51 year old brother. He was always so sweet to everyone.
It was also so hard driving home yesterday as I wondered if I had said goodbye to both my brothers. My other surviving brother and I haven't had a good relationship and he doesn't seem to ever want that. Everything was fine during the past week during this crisis, but now real life happens...my brother is the same.
I have opened the door for him and that is all I can do.
My kids were so good this whole week which was such a help. Now I am just tired and the shock has worn off. Time to take care of me and get back to a somewhat normal life.

I hope everyone is well and that you are filled with blessings today.

Hugs, Cathy

I am so tired today. We had my boyfriends b-day party yesterday. Decided to go through with it because it was planned already and we couldnt do anything in the weekend about the situation anyway. My boyfriend is also autistic. He has Aspergers. So cancelling would be too troublesome for both of us.

Georgia, I LOVE IT! You made my day. emoticon emoticon How are you doing? I am sorry to read of the ups and downs you have been going through.

Cathy and Cynni, so sorry to read of your losses.

Amanda, I do hope you are feeling better.

Amy, sorry your trip to DC didn't go as well as you had hoped.

Jeanine, Liked your picture, you are definitely learning some new skills. I know the heat you talked about, it was so hot in Georgia and all through the drive back to Indiana. I wish all the sweating I did resulted in pounds lost! LOL!

Something I just read and found both funny and sort of appropriate for some us and our stress levels.



1. Picture yourself lying on your stomach on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.

2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.

3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.

4. No one knows your secret place.

5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.

6. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

7. The water is so crystal clear that you can easily make out the face of the person you are holding underwater

There!! See? It really does work. You're smiling already.



Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Good morning all and a glorious day it is. The sun is shining the birds are singing, I had a good sleep - so the world is beautiful.

I am moving on from my problems.

In the cafe today the sun is shining and we are all sitting under the most shady tree - a sumptious picnic is set up and we shall enjoy the food soon.

First though I though we should play somegames.
Lawn bowls for a bit of a laugh and some exercise.
Maybe a walk through the gardens to smell the blooming roses.

Now a relaxing cool iced tea and a bit of a rest in the hammocks. One for each - no fighting.

Lunch - more talking and laughing.

Peace and love to everyone.

Georgia

Cyndi my deepest sympathies for your losses. My prayers to you too.

Take one day at a time. Life goes hand in hand with death. It is a very stressful period in a persons life. Try not to lose your control You can do it. have faith.

We are all here to support each other during the bad times but also to share the good times too.


Amanda a prayer for a better day tomorrow.

I dont think I have told it here yet, but my boyfriends dad passed away 2 days ago. So we have a funeral to attend somewhere next week.

I just hope that I don't have to change all my plans around again, cause I already had to do that last week when my aunt passed. I am full of stress atm because everything is so uncertain, I can't deal with that all too well. Especially since I am supposed to visit my school for the first time since I will be going back to school in September. I realize in my head that I am very autistic again by worrying over this. But I can only handle so much change.

Thanks so much for your kind thoughts regarding my brother's passing. I still can't believe he is gone, yet I saw him at peace for the first time in many days. We were able to be with him when he died.

Jeff was the sweetest, kindest, quietest gentle soul ever.

Georgia, I am so sorry that your son is being so awful to you. I wish I could take him and shake some sense into him for you. As I know all too well, life is too short and you never know when you will suffer the loss of a loved one. We can't wait until that happens to make amends. I will be praying for you and your family for peace and restoration.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Hi Wonderful Supportive Friends,

Sadly my brother passed away last night due to complications to surgery. He was only 51 years old and the sweetest person ever. He is survived by his wife of 21 years along with my brother and I and our parents.
I am so heartbroken and still in shock. I miss him so much but know that he is with our father in Heaven.
His Funeral and Memorial service will be on Saturday which will be a very long day for all of us.
It has been hard enough to go through this, but watching my mom has been even worse. She will leave with my father to go home to Florida on Sunday. I wish she lived here so I could help her through this.

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Hugs, Cathy

You are right Amy an angry person will find some weapon to use. I guess I get so upset that the world has become so wild and violent. So much stuff happening here to and I just wonder where are we heading for.

Have a good day as best as possible with all this playing on our minds.

I could not imagine losing someone like that.

Yeah I agree but in this case I wonder if there wasn't a gun what else would he have done, grabbed a knife, hit her what. It's not the gun that is necessarily the issue it's the anger and hopelessness a person feels in order to do something so violent.

Amy my feelings are that guns should not be needed unless it has to do with their work. My husband carries a gun daily for his work and even though he gets regular training etc I still hate him carrying it.

Anger makes people do strange things. Poor both families going through hell now. It happens everyday and I just think gun laws should be tougher. My personal opinion.

I am praying for everyone to get through these tough days.

He actually had a permit and license to carry a gun. He went through classes with his mom. I agree though if it had not been readily available to him his girlfriend might still be alive.

Sorry for your loss Cathy you are in my prayers.
My friends son was arraigned today on a million dollar bond and the girl he shot died. So now he is up for murder. My friend is a wreck and has no answers at this point as to why her son did this. He has been a good person until now held a job, never any problems and only 23. His life is over now and my heart just aches for her. It's like he has died too now as he will be going away for a long time. Words cannot express how badly I feel for her or this poor girls family or the two children she left behind.
Talk later

Hi Everyone!

Thanks so much for your prayers and thoughts.

It is only a matter of time before my brother passes on to walk in a place of peace and no pain.

I am so heartbroken. He has very little brain activity and the Drs. say it is a matter of days before his body fails.

Even though they say he is mostly brain dead, I see the pain, the sadness and terror in my brother. He has always been a very sweet guy.

Please pray for strength for me and my family as we go through this horrific time.

I am so sorry I am not very good at being a leader right now...I know you understand.

I also ask that you help me to take care of myself. I can hardly eat, my GI just wants to get rid of whatever I do try to eat and so this is NOT the way I want to lose weight.

Thanks so much for being such wonderful loving caring people! I am so thankful for all of you!!

Hugs, Cathy

Cat that is so awesome about your son. I live for the day my Rachel finds a friend she contects with. She has three girls in her class at school but she could care less about any of them. Many of the kids in her school know who she is and say hi to her when they see her but she doesn't acknowledge them. I am grateful that so many people care about her though.
Jeanine the picture of you is great you like the rest of us are way to hard on yourself. Recently I have been thinking you know I might be overweight but I look better than a lot of people and I know a ton of people who would love to look like me. I can't fathom why but then again I can. I'm not a skinny minny but I'm not obese either. I can walk up stairs without feeling like I'm gonna die so that's an accomplishment right.
Ok on a serious note please pray for my friends son. I have no idea what happened only that he and his girlfriend had some sort of fight and he shot her. She is stable and he is in jail. He is the nicest guy 23 years old, has a good job this is so unlike him. We have no idea of the details only that his mom is devastated as we all would be. so please pray for her comfort and that things turn out fairly well.
Ok I gotta go
Everyone hang in there not out there ok.
Love ya
Amy

Even if you are on the right track, youll get run over if you just sit there.

Extra special prayers coming your way Cathy. To you and yours.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Cat that is so exciting. I know I would have been over the moon if that had happened to my son many many years ago.

Prayers for a happy friendship.

Hi! I haven't dropped in for a while....thinking of you all in the good times and the not so good.
I just wanted to share that my son has made a friend!!! They've been sitting together at lunch at school(they are 11)for a whole term; and finally spoke to each other last week! We were invited to take Nick to his friend's house at the weekend - and no surprise here - his friend is on the spectrum too!
They spent an afternoon taking apart everything they could - bliss. I'm so happy for him! emoticon

Oh Cathy I knew something was wrong. I sensed it. I am praying for you all to be able to deal with this very trying time. So much wasted time due to your SIL. Just love your brother and be kind to one another no matter what.

Amy sorry your trip to DC was as bad as all that. I thought it would be difficult having both Rachel and MIL too. Maybe Rachel felt threatened by the attention you were giving MIL. So she played up?

Dee good luck in the relocation and please drive carefully.

I am feeling a bit better today although my head is still sore from all the couching and blowing.

Thank God I do not have to work today as it wil give me some more recovery time.

Prayers to you all.

Georgia

Wow I go to Washington DC for one week and you all explode with life. Some good some not so good.
DC was awful! I hated the people, the traffic the walking the mother in law. Ok I don't hate her but she wasn't a whole lot of help. Being with my Rachel full time was trying to me you at home mom's my hats are off to you. Rachel is very clingy and I didn't get a break the entire week. I was so glad to go home last Friday I cannot tell you how glad.
I am work today and overwhelmed but I took a moment after my lunch to read all your posts and try and catch up.
Georgia I hope you are feeling better and your curves is going well.
Jenny - welcome welcome and believe me I could use one of those mom breaks with my Rachel.
Jeanine can you come to Ohio now and do my floors!
Dee sounds like moving and packing is the pitts hang in there.
Cynni welcome and I too love animals especially cats. I have one that is a kitten currently named Snickers and he's an ornery little guy.
Cathy I am so so sorry about your brother I cry for you my friend. I will pray for ya.
Ok all I gotta go take care.
love ya all
Amy

Hi Wonderful Ladies,

I haven't been on a lot as I have been dealing with a crisis in my birth family. My brother who is 51 is very sick and probably won't make it. We were close as kids, but then my brother married, my sister in law wasn't always very nice to me and pretty much controlled the relationship between me and my brother. I haven't had a lot of contact with him in the past several years. I have tried so hard to connect and just make amends, but I can't make people want to be a part of my life.

My brother Jeff had surgery this past Monday which was very dangerous but necessary. He had the worst case scenario Paraesophageal hernia. His organs were all in the wrong place and he needed surgery, but on the day he went home he ruptured the staples due to a bubble in his stomach, and the acids made his toxic. They took him back into emergency surgery last night and he got through it. But there is very little to no response. The neurologist will come today and let us know if there is any brain activity. If there isn't we will wait for my sister in law to make the decision to pull life support. They tried to remove the ventilator this morning and he couldn't breathe on his own. My parents will come in from out of town tonight and that is when the decision will be made. I am beside myself. I am broken.

Please pray for my brother and for me. I am so sorry I haven't been on and miss you all. I will be back, but need to take care of me and my family right now. I know you understand. Due to a lack of time I have posted this to my three teams so everyone is aware.

You are all amazing!! Hugs, Cathy

Cynni, I don't play the Final Fantasy games but my ds and dd do. My ds (son) picked out Fang for me for another team I am on. I will have to Google your city as Georgia did, it sounds like a really interesting place to live.

Georgia, I am glad you are feeling better and got your gardening done.

Me..I am leaving early on Tuesday to drive to Georgia to help move my dh from one apt to another. Will be back very late on Saturday. I will try and check in when I can. Hope you all have a GREAT WEEK!

sounds wonderful!

I am feeling so much better this afternoon. I did my gardening and spent the rest of the day lying sown and resting.

Hope everyone is fine.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Georgia: Nijmegen is actually the oldest city in the Netherlands. It was the first town to have city rights. That is why it is so old. In the city center are also remains from buildings that were destroyed during the 2nd WW. So the city is full of history.

Cynni i had a look at your home town on google and it is a very old place. I would love to photograph the castles and old structures. How wonderful.

Dee how disappointing that there are no takers yet. How frustrating for you. I am praying for some one to fall in love with the place.

I am going to do gardening today. Runny nose and all. If I don't get it done now I never will as my next day off is next Sunday.

Have a good week everyone,

Georgia

The Netherlands is located in Europe. It is a small country.

Do you happen to play Final Fantasy 13? I recognize Fang from your user picture.

Cynni, You live in the Netherlands. I have heard of it but don't know too much about it. I live in the U.S. in the state of Indiana right now but will be moving shortly to the state of Georgia.

Your cats sound beautiful, love the names. I have the "Walk It Out" game for the Wii and I love playing it. I hope you will too. My black cat is named Rose and our calico that passed was called Shana. My kids named them after characters in the Legend of Dragoon game they have.

Georgia, so glad you will have a few days to get better before returning to work. Haven't heard any feedback at all from the last two showings on the house. So far no takers or offers. I think folks are just out looking to see what type of deals they can get. Sure makes it frustrating, especially having to keep the house spotless and decluttered in case someone calls to come see it.

Cathy, Amanda, Jennifer, Amy, Andi, Jenny, How ya all doing? Hope all is well.
