Good Morning, Team. It is so good to be home - to my own bed and to the book I left on my nightstand.

Welcome home to you too, Sharon. I saw The Vow last saturday and I really liked it. I had seen an article on line about the real life event - some 10 years ago. They said Hollywood bought the rights to their story and they were glad it was finally making it to the big screen.

Kelly - hope you find out what is going on with you mouse. I too have to do some shopping today.

Yesterday on the way home from Kansas, I started noticing lots of Hawks so decided to count them. I counted 22 in Kansas and only 10 in Missouri. In the process, we also counted 2 Bald Eagles.

Have a GREAT day.

Sunny

Of course we missed ya Sharon!

I don't know what the problem is, this is a wireless mouse and not that old, put a new battery in it but that isn't the problem. I'll turn it off and give it a cleaning. At first I thought well, the mouse pad is very old. It was hubs when he worked in Washington 30+ years ago. (It's a scene of Mt. Rainier) But it only hangs up on this site, well I spend more time on here than elsewhere go figure.
Got to get a move on, get a grocery list going, the fridge is actually pretty bare I've got to get back on track and eat three squares and snacks. Not eating enough good wholesome chow and my bod is telling me it's unhappy. I've already packed my go bag for the day now I just need to remember to put it in the car instead of leaving it on the steps.

Hey all! Did ya miss me?! emoticon I'm back!

We didn't go that far, just to Georgetown. It was nice. Too much hoopla for me though. We did go to see a very good movie yesterday, The Vow, and I highly recommend it. It's based on a true story. Other than that, did lots of walking. No shopping though, and I was glad. I hate to shop.

Good to see that you had a wonderful visit with your grand kids Sunny. I'm confident you did your requisite share of pampering and spoiling! Hope they get your dad's infections cleared up, and that he will soon be feeling better.

Kelly, no I've not been having that problem. Have you updated your software recently? I use a trackball, and I know that when it gets dirty and I need to take it apart and clean it, my cursor acts very strange. Maybe you need a new mouse. . .

Well, going to the gym to exercise. Check my page later and hopefully I'll have a new blog done by then.

Tata for now. . .
Sharon

Sunny wonder if the antibiotics aren't part of his bad days. Seems when they did an IV push of the monster antibiotic on hubs it just set him near the edge of the cliff. Certainly hope his good days far outweigh the not so good as he fights those pesky infections though.

Your grandkids will miss you both, you know that!

Things that make you go WHAT...only happens on this site, curser keeps disappearing or hanging up. Anyone else having that problem?
Anyway all of you have a great day, hugs

Good morning, Team.

We are enjoying our time with the grandkids and Sis calls daily with updates about Dad. He still has a couple of infections and on antibiotics. He has good days and no so good days. Thanks for asking.

Our Son and DIL are due home tomorrow so DH and I may leave on Tuesday for home. They would like for us to stay but we do need to get home to check on the animals (currently being cared for by our Son, Brian) and Dad.

TTYL - need to get my shower and get ready for Church.

Love you all, Sunny

Bella, that's great news surviving Ranger School, phase one, second one is a piece of cake . And to have a future daughter in law that keeps him in touch! March will be here before you know it , while you're thinking of it-go put several packs of kleenex in your suitcase you will need them.

Sunny, how's it going spoiling your grandkids? More importantly, how's your Dad?

Cool that you get to spend time with a girlfriend, away from home (we all love our spouses but sometimes it's good to run away). Sure you will have some fun stuff to share next week.

Okay, winter temps are supposed to return tonight after lots of rain today. Oh, weather channel is showing snow for parts of the east.

Have a wonderful Sunday, hugs
Kelly

Oh Bella, that's wonderful! We all know how proud you must be, and how anxious to see him soon! I have a nephew that's a ranger. He's over in Afghanistan right now.

Hope the rest of you lovely ladies are doing OK, and enjoying some peace and relaxation this weekend. Will be out of touch for a couple of days. Going out of town with a girlfriend. See you again on Tuesday, maybe sooner if I can manage it on my mobile app. Hugs to all.

Hi Moms!

Just wanted to let all y'all know that I got to hear from my son yesterday. I am so blessed that he has a wonderful fiancée' that encouraged him to call me. He just finished phase one of Ranger school and is now on to the second phase.
I am so looking forward to going to Ft Benning in late March to see him graduate.

May each of you have a beautiful day!!

Where's this week going? Nothing interesting going on around my side of town, except glad all this rain isn't white stuff we'd be in a mess.

Everyone have a great day, plan something special for yourselves and for your families for the week-end!

Amazing what something so simple as a smile and the touch of a hand will do isn't it! Sunny you wouldn't be doing your job if you didn't spoil them…

By the way Sharon, great quote. Made me realize haven't been using my brain much lately. You know the best stuff comes from cold sap so just put a bucket under the spigot and let it flow as it may. Go ahead, we'll wait.

Oh Eda, just breaks my heart to hear still another soldier has been so severely injured. Elections have consequences. Before any one can be a candidate, be elected or appointed anything is sworn in, they should be required to read and pass a test on the Constitution as it was written not as it has morphed into interpretation, especially our Supreme Court.

Oh my ... ladies ... my heart is full and so are my eyes ... Lesley, I can't find words to tell you how much it hurts my heart to hear that your son might have to go right back over there. I fail to understand why our government puts so little value on family and home. It saddens me greatly. Our family will have a hole in it for as long as my son is deployed ...

Sunny ~ Oh, oh, oh ... how I wish I could just gather you in a big hug and share your pain with you. Knowing and facing it are so totally different ... yes, each and every smile, each and every squeeze of the hand ... every moment that you have to share with your dad is so very precious. While you are away with your grandbabies, I know you will be squeezing them tight and seeing the circle of Life. Our lives are so fragile, so temporary ... God bless you ....

I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one who's blood was BOILING! We heard from a friend of ours on Saturday that his nephew had had both legs blown off by a IED. My mind immediately wondered if that would qualify him to be in a situation "where he might be shot at" and if the $200 per month would be ok to give to him. I sincerely hope that on this election go around, that it isn't the young people who make up the voter foundation. They are so very young ... they don't understand that we can't just lay down and let the government take care of us ... and make all of the decisions! There has to be balance! Argh .. ok, I'm done now ... I'm not really political at all so it is very unusual for me to get upset about much when it comes to the government ... but when it affects my kid, I'm all the way in with BOTH feet! emoticon

~ We're all in this together.

Sunny, so glad that your dad gave you a piece of his heart today. Hope this is a sign for the better.

A week alone with the grand kids! emoticon emoticon I'll bet they're looking forward to it even more than you are! emoticon Hope you have lots of fun things planned to do, and don't forget to fill up that hug bank!

Thanks Kelly for taking a stab at the word search. I was feeling in a stuck place yesterday, and decided to not worry about it, and have some fun. I may have to cut the blogging back. It must be the cold weather - my creative juices a flowing like cold sap these days.
Thanks for dropping by everyone, and your continued support.

Hugs. . .

Headed over to see your word search, Sharon, but for now wanted to say Hello to everyone.

DH and I went to see Dad after church. He smiled at me today which just warmed my heart. I am hanging on to every smile I get.

I hate to leave on Wednesday but we promised our Son/DIL we would watch the Grands while they were in LA for a conference. We will be gone a week - plenty of time to really spoil the Grands - wouldn't you say?

It was 16 when we woke this morning. Now Mr. Weatherman says we might have 1-2" of snow tonight. Praying the highways will be clear for our drive on Wednesday.

Take care and Hugs to all of you, Sunny

Sharon, working on your puzzler...too tired last night to concentrate. You are so clever, anything you do would never be a bust don't think like that!

It's 19 here, don't even want to know the wind chill because there's still a bit of breeze blowing but we will have sunshine again. Just glad there isn't ice and I don't have to be out the door right now.

Hugs to all of you, Kelly

That Valentines' dinner sounds great, Sunny! Hope you had a great time, and that the food was tasty! emoticon Any dinner I don't have to plan and cook is a welcome one in my book! Hope your dad is dong OK.

It's turned bitterly cold here with about 30 mph winds tonight. Had about 30 minutes of snow flurries this afternoon,Currier and Ives snow, as I call it.

If you're looking for a diversion and a few minutes of me time, check out my blog on Happiness for today. There's a word search in it that you can copy and paste onto your clipboard and print out. I don't know, , just decided tit was time to think outside the box today. Maybe ti will be a bust. . .

Hope you all have a great Sunday. Sending lots of hugs your way. . .

Thanks Sunny, got lots of rays of sunshine, but man did it stay windy and cold.

That is so sweet, teens cooking. Don't have to ask if you had a good time.

Oh Sharon, posted way early this morning and hadn't read your blog on Something to Think About, funny how sometimes you get up and read someone else's mind! But you put it more into perspective for me.

Crashed too early last night, woke up at 2 couldn't go back to sleep or even stay in bed so got up before 3 and that was early even for cat and dog. For some reason, really catching up with me, guess finally I'm no longer the night owl I once was - hope so.

Have a great Sunday, Hugs to all our Moms and their families...

We have our Sweetheart Banquet at church tonight. The teen group fixes the dinner (with supervision) and the $ they raise will go to paying for summer camp. Good cause and I don't have to cook. hehehe

I am off to here to get some things done.

Lesley, I am so very sorry for you son and his family. I was under the impression they could not be sent back in less than 6 months. II know this has got to be so upsetting to you all. Will pray that something changes and he is not tapped to go. We're here to offer our support in any way we can. Drop by often!

Sunny, I am so sorry about your Dad. I hope that somehow this will be a time of healing for you all. . . Still praying . . .

Kelly glad my breathing technique is helping you out! It's pretty adaptable, and works.

Eda still sorry that Caleb is not getting R & R.

Hugs to all. . .

Holy Cow Lesley, that just stinks, a turnaround that quickly!!!! All we can do is pray for an early rotation home forever, our military wives and families are so strong and we thank them too.
I said a little prayer that you didn't get sooo fighting mad, but it made me smile at the same time.

Dear Sunny, sad to hear about your Dad. It is never easy expected or not. Nice way to put it, a soft place to land. I too am grateful for all of you.

Wow - being sent back. Boy they don't tell you everything, do they? Praying Lesley that he returns again soon for good to be with his family.

Sis and I met with the Hospice Nurse today as Dad is going to be under Hospice Care when he returns to the Nursing Home. It is not like we didn't see this coming - bless his heart.

I love you all and am thankful for this "soft place to land" when I need too. We are so blessed to have each other.

Hi there all! I have not been checking in regularly at all I'm sorry to say. My son returned from his tour on Jan 26 & they are saying he will be sent back as soon as the 15th of this month. My poor daughter-in-law & Granddaughter. People not related to military personal do not understand. They think everyone is coming home, so not true. I will be praying for all of us Blue Star families & Awesome family members who are serving this country. EBEAM I will check out the website but pray for me, sometimes I see stuff & it makes me fighting mad! God Bless you all

My name is Rebecca, I live in Southern California.

GOD is AWESOME all the time!

Eda, great to see you! That just stinks your son will not get R&R!!! Big thanks for that link - I'd say we all needed a dose of BP meds after reading that. As I have written to many of those nitwits in DC about the military cuts - what part of having our enlisted, guard and reservists deployed more than 18 months don't you understand; there aren't enough to go around now as it is. Seems to me they have tried this insult before. Elections have consequences sadly our Liberty is at stake.

That's good Sunny you got answers so quickly. My BP always spikes when stressed, etc fortunately haven't had to take meds for it. Although lately I know it's reached the boiling point where sure you could see steam coming from my ears. Sharon, your breathing technique has helped a whole lot…

I'm thinking (danger zone), what do you all think of doing a virtual reunion, log our exercise minutes into miles and walk to one of our team mates city for our reunion? Or something like that, any ideas (you all are so creative). Might be a good way to get some of our wayward Moms to visit more often.

Gotta run, all of you have a great day. Kelly

Sunny, glad to hear that it might be controlled with medication. Hope your new BP medicine works for you. That has to be a load off your mind! Way to go with the prayers y'all!

Well, just another way for the government to dishonor our stars! Our country is going down the tubes fast! I think every member of Congress should go over there for a week and do what our kids are doing. They wouldn't make it one day! Heck, I'd like to take a pot shot at each and every one of 'em! Sorry this post got my blood boiling again. This is utterly disgraceful! Take it away from those who put their lives on the line to hand out to those who think they are "entitled".

Thanks for the link Eda. I sent this to my son and my DH who is retired Navy.

Hello ladies ... I see everyone has been keeping up in my absence! So glad that we all have each other for the ups and downs in Life. Sunny, I will be praying for you about the Lupus. I believe in the healing power of prayer ... I know with my mom, it has made all the difference! Very, very cool about your son going to Korea! I will be standing by for the updates!

I didn't know if your "stars in your eyes" had shared this with you but my son did earlier today. My son is still deployed, still somewhere that I can't know where and we've accepted that he will not be getting a mid tour break to come back to the States. How my heart aches for my son and my daughter in law. A year is a very long time to be separated ... emoticon

Anyways, my son sent us this link which is appalling to me. Wanted to share so that we can all be appalled together ...

I don't understand this ... I am not politically motivated ... nor even sometimes interested (especially during Primary season) but I do tend to perk up if it pertains to my kids ... or to my mom's and husband's care at the VA.



~ We're all in this together.

That is a good dream to have Sharon and Kelly. It would be wonderful to have a Blue Star Family Reunion.

I did get some answers from the doctor. I do have a form of Lupus but it is not the kind that affects the connective tissue (internal) only affect the skin. I did have a test to determine if it was indeed caused by the Lisinopril. If not, then I will go back on the Lisinopril as my BP was way too high. Probably a little stress there too - don't you think. I left his office and went to see my medical doctor who prescribed a new BP medication for the time being. What a day and sure glad today is a new day and I can move forward. All in all, it is just life on life's terms. I am beginning to feel a little like Gilda Radner - It's always something!

I am off now to get some things done then down to see Dad.

Love and Hugs to you all,
Sunny

Good morning everyone…
Well Sharon said it all so well about our children; especially about our parents. Sunny may your Dad bring more smiles and empty trays. Amazing what a smile can do to lift our spirits.
Hope you got some answers from the Doc, and that it is only med related and a little cream will send it on its way!
A Blue Star Family Reunion would be a blast, great idea!
Beautiful moon last night, really foggy again this am. Waiting for it to lift, folks around here are lousy pea soup drivers, almost as bad as ice and snow.
Rawk on Moms...hugs to all of you, Kelly

Sunny, so glad to read your post today. We can all identify with you missing Joshua. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a Blue Star Moms Team party for all of our families with our blue stars present?! Well, one can dream,huh? They are all stars in our eyes!

Glad to hear that your dad ate for you today, and opened his heart to you! It's so hard to see our parents so frail; the ones who always guided us, who were our steadfast soldiers, our heroes. . . We never had to worry because we knew we were always protected, and nothing could harm us.

Let us know how it went with your appointment today. Keep that positive attitude goin' girl! You rock! Still keeping you and your family in our prayers, Sunny.

Logged on this morning to find that my e-mail preferences had been changed. Occasionally that does happen so if you get up some day and log in to find no notices, check your e-mail preferences. I think it happens when Spark People do updating. Oh well, changed back so I can now once again receive the notices.

Do have a Marvelous Monday. Yes, we are very proud of Josh. I will keep you posted on this. I think the team going from Tripler is around 14 or 15 so he is not going alone. They are getting ready to do some drills on their skills. It will be a nice break. Just wish he were coming to Missouri. I already miss him.

Dad is doing better in some respects and not so good in others. He is now on the Cardiac Care Unit as he had some irregular heart waves on Saturday night. He did eat better for me yesterday and even managed a smile - warmed my heart for sure.

Take care and do have a good day. I have my doctor appointment today with the Rhumatologist about the rash I have had on my back for the past year. I still think it is related to a medication but I will let him tell me. I just hope he agrees with me and doesn't tell me I have Lupus which is what the Dermatologist thought might be going on. What does he know? Hehehe

Love you all, Sunny

Doing a quick drive through to check on you all!

Sunny hope your Dad is doing much better, it isn't easy. AND how Kewl that Josh goes to Korea to show off his Medic skills!!! Congratulate him - bet that got a smile from you...

Well, Super Bowl Sunday is finally here, hope this game is as exciting as it was 4 years ago. Only difference is we were watching it in Kauai then. Guess we'll just have to dig out a couple of our Hawaiian shirts and pretend.

Thanks so much. He is back in the hospital - still has some pneumonia and a UTI.

I will go down later this morning.

Take care and do have a good day.

Sunny

I do have some good news. Our soldier, Joshua, is going with a team of Medics from Tripler Hospital (where he is stationed) to Korea in May to participate in a Field Medics Competition.
I will let you know more later.

Just stopping by before I get shower. Kelly & all, I do appreciate your prayers. Dad is really having a hard time. He is not eating and not drinking. Dr. did order some IV fluids yesterday as he is dehydrated. Bless his heart - everything is a struggle for him right now. I am praying for peace for him.

I will try to stop by this evening.

Love you all, Sunny

Stopped by yesterday and must not have hit Post, senior moment can't do three things at the same time.

Sunny we have your Dad in our prayers and hope that yesterday was a better day for him; today , tomorrow, and so on...

We had that storm Wednesday, yesterday was so much like Spring, then the sun went down and you realized you're out without a sweater or a coat.

Gotta run, as Sunny says Love you all and hugs. Kelly

Hi Team. Just wanted to stop by to see you all as my week seems to be spiraling out of control. Dad is going down hill so do keep him in your prayers. Today, he didn't want to eat. It is all just too sad. I will do down early tomorrow morning.

I am loving this beautiful weather but last night the sky got black and it looked like we were in for a major storm but it passed. Sounds like it headed your way. Hope everyone is safe in the path of the storm.

I am off to bed. Love you all, Sunny

Who stole January???

I like snow too but not so much as I used to, guess been in the south too long. We just had a major thunderstorm.

Everyone have a great day tomorrow, Kelly

From what I have been seeing on the net and reading in the paper, the outage might have been caused by some Solar Storms Friday night. It sure makes sense to me.

Yepper, only 49 days until spring. Yippee! I am ready to play in the dirt.

Courageous is an independent Christian drama film produced by Sherwood Pictures and was released to theaters on September 30, 2011. It is the fourth film by Sherwood Pictures, the creators of Flywheel, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof. Filming in Albany, Georgia concluded in June 2010. The film was marketed by Provident Films, which also marketed their previous films.

The film was directed by Alex Kendrick, who co-wrote its screenplay with his brother Stephen Kendrick. Kendrick also stars in the film, along with Ken Bevel, Kevin Downes, and former running-back Tony Stallings. About half of the cast and crew were volunteers from Sherwood Baptist Church, while the remainder were brought on through invitation-only auditions.

The above might help jog your memory, Kelly.

We got half way though the movie and the satellite reception started acting up. I was on line with Dish network for a good 45 minutes with no success so they scheduled a technician to come out on Wednesday. This morning DH gets up and turns on the TV like any other morning and it is getting reception this morning. Strange! Dish did give us a credit on the movie so we will try to finish watching it tonight.

Regarding the fitness minutes, I actually had none this week because of the cold. I average any where between 30 and 60 + minutes a day. If you average my minutes out right now, it is around 40 a day. I could have done so much better but have been sick twice this month. Yie, yie, yie.

So happy only 50 days until Spring.....YEA!

Just noticed something, guess should pay more attention…instead of weight or loss banner on posts , you can put minutes on it! Good job on the minutes
Sunny - in spite of that nasty cold!

I'm sure I've told you all this before, my Mom laid a guilt trip but it didn't take her long to settle in, in fact there were times when she was in a real hospital she'd want to go home to her kids…except she wasn't talking about us, she was talking about the staff at the nursing home! I think you and your Sis have it right about his being angry AND that you aren't taking it personally.

Sharon I think we'll be going with an adjustable bed, take out of savings and get a dual one. And thanks for the tip on AARP.

Good to see you Ronnie, come by again soon!

Sunny, in the back of my mind I know I've heard about that movie but can't place it.

And have a great week-end, hugs to all of you...Kelly
