The brownies and cornbread both sound so good Bonnie. :) I'm glad your washer is fixed and things put back together. :)

Dee, you're doing so great! I'm glad you can have a WW meeting on a Sunday. :) Keep up the good work!

I'm sorry about the sadness yesterday Melissa, but it sounds like you ended up having a wonderful day anyway. :) It's okay to go over once in a while, don't kick yourself about it, I know you will get right back on track!

Kathy is a childhood friend of mine who had to move to California with her parents when she was 17. She stayed out there when she graduated. She recently found out she had stage 4 uterine cancer but her doctor at Stanford is pretty sure she can beat this. Prayers are sure appreciated.

We did have a wonderful and relaxing time on our over nighter. :) Of course I didn't want to come back home but I did promise Greg he could be home in time to watch the Nascar race today. And that's okay because at least he'll have a bit more relaxing time. :) He's so good to me!

I know you love having Zack there, but it is a bit much when so many other things are going on. I thought that kind of thing only happened to us.

HUGS!

Good evening Gal Pals
Spent the day cooking for the church's Burgoo tomorrow. taking Brownies and corn bread. Then work on a B-day party for next week-so much for a day off. My washer is fixed and the laundry closet is put back together yay.

Thank you Cyndie.

We're going to do an over-nighter tonight, going to Marietta. :) We've only been away once this year so far and that was back in May, all due to my many problems this year, so we need the get away.

I'm not taking my laptop but we'll be back home tomorrow.

I'm glad your MIL is doing better Melissa and I'm really glad Anthony is too.

Hugs!

Melissa, I'm happy to hear all of the good news from you. I'm sad about your parents' house, though.

Susi, I'll be praying for Kathy!

Wishing all my Pine Valley gal pals a wonderful weekend!

Hello Gal Pals. Feeling alot better, but still could use some more sleep.

My MIL has really come along. Apparently they were giving her 3 doses of Xanax a day. I learned from my days working in emergency services with the mentally ill that you don't give elderly people benxodiazopine drugs. I learned that in my masters level psychopharmocology class. It can actually make elderly people psychotic. And, doctors still do it!! Why? She is lucid and participating in physical therapy. She is very weak and you can barely hear her when she talks, but she is talking and eating. Here's hoping she lasts like this! There is still a bit of confusion and again, weakness, but a ton better than she was! I'll know she is back to normal when she starts complaining again! I went to see her after Curves today and then ran down the hall to see my friend who had the stroke a couple months ago and he was in pitiful shape. It just is so heartbreaking to see a once active man who is just a few years older than yourself reduced to not really knowing where he is. He obviously has good and bad days and today was a terrible day.

Anthony came home last evenin smiling and joking and playing with Sassy! I guess it was the improvement in his mother. Plus he did have his massage... He seems almost back to his old self. That makes me feel better too!!

Tomorrow we are taking Zachary over to my dad's old place to see if we can get some of his stuff out of there. I hope it doesn't break his heart to see his grandparents' house soiled and a mess. It breaks my heart. My other friend, who cleans for us, went over to get the living room furniture and she said it smelled lie something and then it came to her.... Her husband got addicted to crack cocaine and that is why she left him and she said the place smelled like crack. so, that is where my mom's diamond went and her computer. Crap on me if you must, but do you have to steal from and completely ruin my parents' home? Really? I am heartbroken.

You know, I feel like my heart is broken. I thought being nice was supposed to pay you back? Giving a drug addict a second and third and fourth and probably even 5th and 6th chance isn't nice enough? No, guess that was just stupid. Being judgmental and mean allows you to live for free in a house? Being judgmental and mean saves you from the severe effects of a stroke? I just don't know. This is why my faith gets rocked.

I'm a day behind on my bootcamp workouts, so should go do my one for today. I did the one from yesterday earlier. That is an interesting one!

Dee-- So good to hear from you!! Hope you had a great time in Vegas! My aunt and uncle always go this time of year when it is cooler.

Missy-- So glad you and your mom got to spend a good day together! As Susi said, you are both blessed to have each other!

Hello my Spark Twin. Hope you are well! Hello Bonnie, you are a nice person and I sure hope niceness is repayed to you!! Hello out there, Patti!

Zachary will be here soon, so better go do my bootcamp!

The new prayer thread wasn't up yet, so could you all say some prayers for my friend Kathy please? She's a childhood friend and I just found out she has stage 4 uterine cancer. She's getting her treatments at Stanford, she lives in California, and her doctor thinks she'll be fine, but the extra prayers never hurt. Thanks. HUGS!

I hope you're feeling better today Melissa. Did the massage help Anthony relax a bit?

That was so nice of you to help your neighbor out Bonnie. I've had to push daddy in a wheel chair a few times and it can be challenging. :)

I'm glad you had a nice visit with your mom Missy. :) You are both so lucky to have each other! :)

Deeeeeeeeeee! So glad to see you on here! I hope all is going well for you. I'm sure you're busy again though.

Well Missy, it has to be a boy or man, a woman would know better. LOL! :)
Sorry the cub had to practice in the cold, I hope he doesn't get sick from it. That and football, never could understand them playing in the cold or rain. :(
I'm glad you got some of your shopping done. :) Greg and I don't buy anymore. We have a meal with the family, and only give the under 18's money, that's what they like best. I usually make everyone an ornament, I've been doing that forever. :)

That conscious sedation is probably really expensive, probably like hypnotizing or something like that. I'll stick with the shots. :)

Melissa, Jessica has been kicking my butt. I really appreciate it. Thanks! As for the dentist, like you, I dislike it. There's a dentist here who advertises conscious sedation, but I'm sure it's more expensive, so I suck it up!

Susi, I'm glad that your dental appointment went well. I'm happy that we have that out of the way for a while.

Bonnie, I hope you're having a good week!

Missy, congrats to the victorious cub! I hope that Bear Family harmony continues. Stay safe in that weather!

They did still have to practice tonight, but only did it for an hour. Oldest cub is home now taking a WARM shower! He was cold.

The dental went well today. :) I don't mind going even if there's work to be done. I do take care of my teeth. This is only the 1st time in about 4 years that I've had to have anything done other than cleaning and x-rays, and since it was just a replacement, I'm GOOD! emoticon

Congratulations to the team for winning the game. I hope they either cancelled for today or the bad weather didn't show up.
I'm glad the cubs are doing better. I know it has to be hard when TOM is hanging around or about to show up, he can be so ANNOYING! He's got to be a teenager too! :)

Love you bunches! HUGS!

Bonnie, great to see you here. Glad you are okay. Hope your computer gets better soon. Have a good day!

Auntie Cyndie glad all went well yesterday for you. emoticon

That's very crappy Melissa! It just doesn't seem fair when THEY mess up. Praying for Anthony!!! HUGS!!!

Susi good luck today for your appointment. I love my dentist too, don't like going for work getting done, but love the people. They are like family!

It's suppose to be a Nor'Eastern today for us. Flooding rains! I hope they cancel oldest cubs practice tonight. It's suppose to be bad all day into tomorrow morning. But speaking of older cub, he won his game last night. I heard he played very well! I couldn't make it to the game, but my Godmother's husband went and my SIL went since they played against a school in her city. The won 6 to 1! WooHoo!!!

The funny part is that I know all of what you ladies are saying about children, boys, teenagers! It just can get to you at times and put your TOM at the same time and it's crazy! Thanks though for the love, support, and reminders that it's normal. Love you all!

Both cubs have been doing a little better. But I'm making sure I stick with what I say. Like little cub has a dance Friday. He wanted to go home on his friend's bus and that parent would take him. Sounded go, I wouldn't have to fight the traffic, etc. BUT I was annoyed with how he has not been cleaning his room, and how poopie he did on his TWO chores, so I said no! He was upset, but went to his room and didn't fight it. About 15 minutes later he came out and was acting fine.

Oldest cub was super sweet to me last night too. Checking on me, etc. Not sure if it was because they knew I cried and was in pain or what, but I'll take it, hee hee. Last, Papabear and I talked again last night. For now he is on the same page with me, so that's great!

Melissa, I am the one running the house, but the cubs still test me. Again, I know it's normal. My hard part is finding that "line". Punish?!!? Let it go?!? etc... I'm learning and talking with you all is helping! I appreciate it! THANK-YOU ladies!! Love ya!

Okay, hope you all have a great day. Stay safe, have fun, and God bless!

Someone told me years ago that little girls are so sweet when they are young and trouble when they are older. But boys are trouble when they're young and the best when they are older. Your boys will be the kind that even though they are testing you as teens they will be there in a heartbeat no matter what you need, of course after they get out of their "terrible teens" :) You are raising those cubs to be the ones that will make the best sons, boyfriends, husbands, fathers and grandfathers!

It's good to see you here Bonnie. I hope that pc straightens up for you soon, that can be so annoying. :(

I'm glad your dental went well Cyndie! I'm glad it's over with for you. :) Mine will be fine it's an easy one. I'm not afraid or nervous at the dentist at all. :)

Melissa, in my family it was dangerous for us to test my mom's limits, she's the one who wore the pants in the family, and not too well I'm afraid. Don't get me wrong I loved and still love her very much but she had her mom in her and grandma was a force to be reckoned with! :(

I'm sorry about the insurance mess up for Anthony. It doesn't seem fair when they mess things up, we are the ones who are hurt for it. Our insurance was supposed to be 80/20 and they sent it in for 70/30 and even though it was their mistake they wouldn't let Greg change it. The did that to several people, so it wasn't just us. :(

It does sound like Anthony needs his Cymbalta upped. When I'm extra stressed I ask my doctor to up my Paxil for a while, then I let him know when things are better and he takes it down again. It's been working very well like that for me for a good while.

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

As always, I thank each of you for your prayers and good vibes and for you just being there when I need you most!

Bonnie-- Good to hear from you! check in when you can! Any fun events this weekend?

Cyndie-- glad you made it thru the dental visit oK! I have to admit.... I'm scared of the dentist! I go, but with great anxiety each time! Wow, Jessica can certainly kick our butts, can't she? I wish I held onto my girlish figure too!

Missy-- I had something very important to say to you and it is gone out of my head.... Poof! Just gone! If I remember it, I will let you know. No, Anthony doesn't really have anyone to talk to and alot of his fear and depression is coming out in anger, as it often does for men! Oh! I remember... It is a teenager's job to go against Mom & Pop! It is really more abnormal when they do not. The thing is that moms usually get the worst of it because moms are generally safer. Teens know they can push mom's limits, say things to her, disagree with her and she will not stop loving them. They are a little unsure about dads because men do tend to fly off the handle a bit more.... Anyhow, testing your limits is safer. While that does not excuse any unacceptable behavior and there must always be consequences, it is normal and all part of a cub becoming a bear!

Susi-- He is taking cymbalta (sp?), but his dose may need to be increased. After all this craziness with his mom and all we found out today that the new insurance plan will not pay for one of his meds. The boss's son messed up the insurance plan and we are the ones being screwed! I honestly don't know how much he cna take! I am seriously worried.

Oh, Missy, oh yeah.... She was supposed to be a friend. But, somehow I attract these nutcases or users. Maybe I'm just too generous!

Well, bedtime! Night all!

Missy, I must say, the non-moms here are really smart! People who don't make their kids do chores aren't doing them any favors. As moms, our job is to raise responsible, caring adults. emoticon

Melissa, that boot camp was great! If I knew then what I knew now, I would have worked harder to maintain my girlish figure! emoticon

Susi, I will be hoping that your dental appointment goes as well as mine did. I'm happy to have that behind me! emoticon

Thank-you Pine Valley girls!!! I appreciate all you all say, and love I can turn to you all. BIG HUGS!!!

Melissa, Like Susi said below, you have us to turn to with everything going on. Does Anthony have someone to talk to, other then you?!? He may need to release too. And if he's like Popabear, he's not good at doing that I'm sure. It's gonna be so hard!

So sorry about your Mom's ring and everything that the lady took and did at your Dad's place. Didn't you say she was a friend?!?! So sad!!

Praying for everything to get better for your MIL and especially some comfort for Anthony and your FIL. It must be so hard!!! Prayers!!!

Papabear is on his way home from picking up oldest cub. He had a game, in the rain too. But last I heard the score was 6 to 1 them winning! Go BullDogs!

I'm excited to see how it goes when he gets home. He usually acts really good and helps out, like his way of saying sorry. What matters to me is how it goes when we are back to... do your chores, etc. Praying for myself too... hee hee.

Okay, have to go clean the kitchen from dinner.
Hugs to you all...

Missy, Mellissa is right! Come here and vent any time about anything. We all need to get that junk out of our system and we're here for each other. Never hesitate to let it out here!
I'm so very sorry that you are in so much pain. You really do need to go to your obgyn about that. You could be going in to menopause and that could cause it to be extra bad.

My mom use to use that wonderful phrase..if your friend jumped off a cliff would you do it too? You know you're being tested by the cub, but you are in charge. :) I'm glad he was sent to his room and no phone, maybe he'll think twice the next time. And if he doesn't, well, maybe a grounding from his girlfriend would work. :)

He will replace my filling tomorrow Melissa. :) I was glad to get in this week. :)

Try to be patient with Anthony, I know you are, but sometimes we need to go that extra mile for them. He's under a lot of stress right now seeing his mom acting like she is and probably nothing can be done about it. He worries too, I'm sure about his dad and I know he worries about you. It may not hurt if he could get a little something from his doctor to help with that extra stress for a while.

I know you are stressed too over all of this stuff going on. You have us to talk to about it and you know we will all be praying for all of you.
It doesn't seem to take long for some people to get very old right before your eyes sometimes. It's a hard thing to go through. Hang in there!

HUGS!

Missy-- Don't ever feel bad about coming here and venting! It is your right to vent! And, yes, eeven we non-mommies know that it is not right for anyone to be rude to you or to bad things to you that hurt your feelings! I'm glad you sent a note to your doctor, but you need to call. You should not be having that kind of pain! Something is wrong and it is time to get it fixed! The kiddos can make fun all they want, but in the end, when it comes to living life and growing into a responsible adult, your cubs will be the ones women want to marry and have children with and the spoiled ones will be trying to figure out how to use an ATM or wash their clothes at college without Mommy doing it for them! Do not accept your children being rude to you.

Twyndie-- Oh! I thought yesterday's bootcamp was going to kill me! I'm really not as in shape as I imagined I was! I went to Curves today and made them make me work hard! HeeHee! I reckon I have to put a little more into my daily workouts and get stronger! I'm just imagining you in your leg warmers! I did the whole 80s gym aerobics thing! I even had one of those stirrup like leotards and yes, leg warmers too! Wish I had that body now! We keep messing up appointments here! We need to organize better since we keep track of our own appointments plus dad's!

Susi-- Glad you got in to see your dentist tomorrow! Will they take care of the filling tomorrow?

Anthony is so grumpy. He has that hoarse voice too and is answering in all one syllable answers and most of the time I don't hear him and then he gets mad at that! I don't know what to do. He needs to figure something out. He's going to end up as nasty and hateful as his mom and drive everyone away. He is getting that bad. He's mad at everyone and everything.

MIL is not improving at all and the doctor said this may be all we might can expect. She is so weak she can't hold her weigh tup to do any PT and she is almost always confused now and doesn't make sense when she speaks if she decides to speak at all. What is so weird is how fast she went from being a mean old lady to being an elderly, confused, baby! All this happened within the past 3 weeks!

You should see what a mess that person who was "renting" dad's condo left! I know she stole my mom's diamond ring too. But, can't proove it, so..... No wonder is mad at everything and everyone! I don't know how I am not.

Still, your concerns and worries are important too! So, don't any of you fear coming here and venting! This is the most caring group of women I know! Share! Remember, I don't want to be the main character in this soap! LOL!

Good morning ladies...
Feeling better today. I feel bad I came here and complained to you all. Everyone has problems and mine really are normal and most likely my TOM. HATE IT!!!

As for Papabear, we talked. I told him he hurt my feelings and he said he was saying that more for himself (what?!!?) and he was really sorry. Did you know the other night while I was up all night thinking, I planned to go to PF last night. Boy did God laugh at me for planning... hee hee. I didn't make it!

Oldest cub and I got into it and I sent him to bed at 9pm! His phone was taken away to this morning, and I think Papabear talked to him. We'll see... That was all about being rude to me. I HATE that too!

As for not doing chores, I KNOW that comes from his two BFFs. They both don't have to do them and I saw them at Oldest Cub's birthday party making fun of the chore chart. I know... because little bear told me that older bear told him... that none of his friends do chores and I'm home all day, so why can't I just do them. That is the SPOILED BRAT children in my town talking. I couldn't say anything, not to get my little spy in trouble, but I bring it up in ways to make my point we are NOT rich, I don't care what others do, these are the rules and we listen to them!

I'll keep working on it and turn to God for the right words and strength to deal with it all. Again, I know it all could be a lot worst, so really just needed to vent and I appreciate all they support! LOVE YOU ALL!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope your appointment goes well today Auntie Cyndie! Yours too Susi, tomorrow. Happy thoughts going your way!
emoticon

So I promised I wouldn't make this lengthy, but I think I already did... sorry.

Last night was an awful night for me. Papabear and oldest cub went to oldest cub's work to find out his schedule and fill out some work papers. I made tonight's dinner and was resting by checking e-mails. I started with some cramps, so I got some meds and went to shower, get comfortable for the evening. I then sat on the couch to rest... the cramps came on fast and were really starting to hurt. By the time Papabear came home I was almost in tears. I was in pain how ever I was... sitting, standing, etc.

He turned on football and I tried to rest on the couch. The cubs were still up, so I went to my room and laid on the bed, basically to cry. Normally curling up like a ball helps, but that hurt more. I can handle pain, really I can, but this was bad. I cried for about 40 minutes before Papabear came looking. I hardly ever cry in front of him, so for me to be crying, he knew it was bad.

After an hour and 20 minutes it was starting to let up. I caught my breath and headed back to the couch, now in a ball. It was awful! I still feel some pain and took meds already. I really scared me. And YES, I will be sending my doctor a note about this, just to have it documented and see what she thinks. Have a said, I HATE my TOM!!!???!!! Oh, and I haven't even actually started yet! According to my counting, I'm due tomorrow. But I'm not showing my normal signs. Very weird.

Okay, I'm done... sorry again. emoticon

I hope you all have a great day! Today is going to be good! Today is going to be good! Today is going to be good! (hee hee)

Love you all! emoticon

Cyndie the Ditz is here! Would you believe my appointment is tomorrow?!? I guess I'm so eager to have it behind me, I got the day wrong. emoticon

Melissa, I am so happy that Anthony has a show! We all know how great it is to have one. I still miss ours!

Missy, I am so happy that you come here to vent! As you know, we all support you. I think Susi and Melissa had some good ideas. I hope they help.

Susi, I hope that all goes well with your dental appointment!

Missy, I'm glad everything is going well except "the problem". I'm not a mom, but the TWO chores you gave them to do, no talking to friends or anything till they are finished. Geez, if I only had 2 chores to do when I was a teen it would have been Heaven on Earth! Ah, PapaBear!! Got one for him too!!! If he thinks you're over-reacting, he can do the chores for the cubs, all TEN of them!! I know it's easy for me to sit here and tell you to do that and much harder for you to do, but you work too and that's important. They are part of the family and they need to do their part. Even Greg helps me in the house without being asked to do anything. Bless your heart! I'm glad you came here to vent. Even us non-mommies can understand how you feel. HUGS!

As for PapaBear putting you down..well, if mine did that to me it would hit the fan! There's no sense in that! I know you love each other very much but sometimes you need to draw the line. I hope things work out for you. Love you bunches!!

Melissa, I'm glad your dental went well. :) Cyndie, how are you doing after yours? I called today and I can get in to get my filling replaced on Wednesday afternoon! Woohoo! I love it when a plan comes together! Hehe!

Hugs!

Missy-- You deserve to vent! I'm sorry, but I get so aggrivated by men who instead of supporting mom, take sides against her and even join in making fun of her with their chaps! No, no, no!! Those 2 chores are not alot to ask of him and he needs to do them. Maybe no phone or game (video) until the 2 small chore are done and done right? Can you take youngest cub to PF with you? Maybe you could go while they are playing their soccer games? I know you want to be there for them, but you could do the 30 min. circuit and come right back, maybe? Just sort of thinking out loud here.... I like Halloween and I like scary stuff, but I'm about zombied out here! But, it is a show he enjoys, so good for him!

Hello to all my other GalPals. I need to get away from this computer and do some exercise! I graded some stuff and got that out of the way and now just catching up on SP. But, I need to move!

Hoping everyone's dental appointments go well! Mine did! I'm glad you all have some coverage! I work part time and Anthony works for a private company that doesn't do the dental. Now they have us with an insurance plan that is horrendous! I don't know what we are going to do!

Afternoon ladies! Finally got here and able to read the post below...

Glad you had a great time at your party Melissa! I saw the pictures on FB. Looks like everyone had fun!
Sorry to hear all about grumpy MIL (trying to be nice). I saw mine this weekend, and I just thought of you. Mine is a 99% angel compared to yours! She got brownie points for coming to little cub's game. She even spent some time watching him and not just talk about herself, my SIL (her daughter), and my SIL's two boys. So that was a plus too!

I'll continue to pray for your FIL & Anthony! It might be better if your MIL ends up in a home. Then your FIL can go home and rest, get that break, etc! I know she'll make it hard for him, but hopefully the nurses can help him understand it's the meds, whatever happened to her in the past, old age, etc. Help him understand it's okay for him to still live his life. PRAYING!

Last, very excited that Anthony got his break and relaxation time... even if it's that stupid show, hee hee. Little cub's "girl he likes" loves that show! My family is not into gore, scary, stuff like that and Halloween, so it's funny listening to him. Anyways, glad he got that break.

Also glad he is okay from that accident!!!

Auntie Cyndie, hope all went well at the dentist! Sorry you don't have a good dental plan. Our's isn't the gratest either. I think it's stupid since it's just as important! anywho... good luck!

Susi... I was all about relaxing Sunday too, well in the evening, hee hee. Glad you got to just stop and relax! Hope your appointment goes well too when you go! Papabear has an appointment next week and the cubs after that!

Speaking of cubs, oldest cub had his PSAT's Saturday. He felt it went well. Youngest cub scored the only goal for his team, but then lost 1 to 2.

I know you all are going to say I'm a good mama, blah blah blah. So Thank-you in advance, but I have to have a MOMMY moment... skip if you don't want to hear me again... hee hee.

So the cubs are great, good boys... I KNOW This, but they are driving me crazy! It's like out of all three of them (Papabear too) I'm the weirdo in the family. I know I'm due, and that doesn't help, but they just don't listen, ignore me, and Papabear is NO help!!! Sometimes he makes it worst!

I tried to be nice. My cub's had 10 chores to do, but with all their sports, oldest cub starting drivers ed, working, & school/homework. I thought I'd lighten their chores. So they have basically two chores each and their rooms to do. I do the rest, and if they can help, they are suppose to help too.

Little cubs, still has to be reminded, but will do them. Oldest cub... he's pushing it! He couldn't do his TWO CHORES this whole weekend! But had time to talk to friends, make fun of Mom and fight with his brother. Oh wait, to be fair... at 9:50pm Sunday he was going to start them. One is vacuuming the house... little cub was already in bed... and we have a small house, so he could of done in before! The other is dusting the living room... again, small room, hardly anything to dust!

So I was mad and they acted like I was over reacting! EVEN PAPABEAR! That got me madder! I just think it's not fair being the only lady in the house and a husband who doesn't help with parenting most times. I know I'm due and that's why it's still bothering me, so I thought I'd release to my BFF's (I spared you all and kept it to just one thing, but the big one right now bugging me)! Thanks for listening/reading! I just wish I had some help sometimes. And so, Sunday, I rested in the evening! hee hee.

I won't even tell you how Papabear DID pick on me for watching TV and said I should be at Planet Fitness or doing something more productive. Let me remind you, he sat on the other couch all night watching the show too, and only went 3 times all Summer to PF!!! So last night I took forever to fall a sleep trying to figure out how I can get back to the gym! He can just go, I don't want to leave little bear a lone, so I tend to not go... Papabear wouldn't care and would go.

Okay, I'm done, sorry!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope you all are having a great day! I made my apple crisp and it's just about ready! smells very good!!!

Hay question... my neighbor gave me some green peppers. I'm the only one who really eats them. Can I freeze them, and if so, are they still good?!!? Or do you know anything I can do with them??!?!?

Our dental pays 100% twice a year for the cleaning and check ups, only once a year for x-rays. After that any work that needs done is 70/30, so I don't complain about paying the 30%. After Greg retires though we'll have to buy our dental. :(

Good luck with your appointment today Cyndie!

I'm glad Anthony could relax watching his show. :) He sure needs that! I'm not a fan of zombies and things like that, but if it helps him, it's a good thing. :)

Have a good day even if it is Monday. :) HUGS!

I agree with Twyndie, Susi, a Sunday afternoon nap is perfect!! Good for you!

twyndie-- I guess a little insurance is better than none! I try to pay as I go with my dentist, but if I have ot have work done I have to actually make payments! It is crazy! At least you will have that permanant filling!

Anthony is watching his zombie soap opera, The Walking Dead. He enjoys it, but I never could get into it. It gives him an hour of escape like AMC used to do for us! I sure do miss it in the afternoons!

OK, beddy bye time! Night Night!

Melissa, I have dental insurance, but it pays very little. I'm not looking forward to the bills for the temporary filling and the permanent one.

I'm glad that you got to go to your party. You certainly needed a break!

Susi, I'm glad that you were able to get a nap in. That's a perfect Sunday afternoon!

I hope your FIL doesn't end up in the hospital too from stress and exhaustion. The prayers will continue.

Love the pictures you posted. :) So cute and looked like so much fun!
I'll call to make my appointment tomorrow. It's just a filling replacement. The one they're replacing is really old.

We had our supper for a late lunch today so Greg could watch the Nascar race while he was eating. He enjoys doing that during a race. After that I ended up falling asleep and just woke up from my nap. Still can't seem to get moving. LOL!

Hello Gal Pals! Welcome to another week! The days seem to fly by, but with this month having 5 weeks, it seems like the month is going on and on and on! Weird. But, I guess time is what we make it!

Cyndie-- Here's hoping your dental appointment goes well, what is it? tomorrow? Do you have dental insurance? I don't. It costs more each time I go! I just had my 6 month check up and cleaning and thankfully nothing was wrong, but it still cost an arm and a leg!

Susi-- Hope you can get your dental appointment made and your tooth fixed soon. Or, did you get it made already?

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! I did. I went to a belly dance Halloween party and it was fun! We all had a great time and the food was great as were my martinis! I danced some and laughed alot and I needed that!

Haven't heard anything about MIL today. Hope her mind clears up. She was a mess yesterday. So confused. But, I'm afraid it is not going to clear up and this is the her we will have and that is sad. She was mean, but sharp up until she stopped eating!

Thank you all for the family prayers! And, oh, Susi, FIL will not leave her alone. She won't allow him to and he won't as long as she says she doesn't want him to go! But, when he is there.... Well....

OK, I am needing some lunch! Enjoy what is left of your weekend!
