Lainie, can any of Rocky's brother's relative recommend a doctor for you. I know we are on our 3rd dr here. We didn't like the first one. We loved the 2nd one, but she changed to a practice over the mountain and then we found this one. We really like her.

Nancy, I still haven't found a new dr. yet. I've checked out a couple, but I didn't like the reviews they received. So, I'm still looking. I'm determined to find one before the month runs out. Enjoy your soap!

Kitt, Glad you had time to stop by since you were so busy today. Larry's appts went well. Your presents for Christmas will be well received I am sure.

Lainie, I am glad the rash isn't from the new med that you started again. Did you find a new doctor yet. You need to find one before you need one......does that make sense?

Just finished dinner...going to go watch today's soap before too late. Then I will be able to read a little.

Nancy, so far I'm doing good. I still have a little bit of a rash, but I think that's excema. I've dealt with that a lot over the years. It usually gets bad in the summer time.

Kitt, hello to you as well. Hopefully, one of these days Rocky will show me how to use the equipment.

Lainie, sorry you didn't get to do your walk with Rocky last night. Another time for sure. At least you got some moving around done while watching tv. Did you get the rash again when you started the med again......

Hello Ladies!

Not much going on here, except for work. We had our weekly conference call, which lasted longer than usual. I don't have much planned for today, but will probably sweep and mop the floors. Rocky didn't get home until almost 10 p.m. last night. He went with Marlene to take her brother back to Camp Pendleton. He was visiting for the weekend. Rocky didn't realize how far the drive would be and especially in all the traffic. We didn't take our walk. I did march in place and dance around while watching Dancing With the Stars last night. The dogs get a little hyper when I do that. I did manage to get in the steps was wanted to get.

Nancy, we still haven't checked out the gym yet. I've been waiting for Rocky to go with me. I've never been in a gym before or used a tread mill. I want him to show me how.

Barbara, glad you had a good time yesterday. Great job not having dessert. We do have a couple of pools in the huge complex. I haven't been yet, because I've been dealing with the rash. I need to find a good time to go when there aren't a lot of people or kids.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the day! Take care!!

Hugs,

Lainie

Good morning, we had a beautiful day yest, nice and sunny. Our dinner was so good, I stuck to my plan of loading with veggies. And no dessert and nobody asked if I had any.

I can't have sweets in the house, they are my down fall, and I don't stop until they are all gone, so really work hard at not having them here.

Nancy, I think Reese's has come a long way and the steal will soon disappear. Glad you were able to help Deborah.

Kitt, wouldn't it be nice to have warm weather all winter, but when you get south you will have it nice.

Lainie, that would be good if you could go to the gym and use the equipment. Do they have a pool in the complex too?

Need to get showered and dressed and then off to my appt. Will be a long day for me.

Kitt, We had very light drizzle off and on yesterday, but never any real rain falling. Our temp today is to be 70 and it is already 65.......couldn't believe how warm when I took Reese's out this morning at 5:30.... We had a good visit with Reese's trainer and he says he is doing well. He said he could use him for demonstrations.......He is sometimes still stealing but we just have to keep after him and he will stop......not near as bad as previously so I guess we are getting somewhere.

Lainie, I hope you got a chance to get you walk around the complex when Rocky got home. It is so good for you. Did you ever get to the gym and see what equipment they have. Maybe you could start out slow on the treadmill and work your steps up that way.

Today Larry has 2 dr.. appts.....one has to do with something for his cataract surgery. I am not sure exactly b/c I wasn't there when the dr explained it. His surgery is in 2 weeks for the right eye and the left hasn't been scheduled yet.

I will check in later

Hello Ladies!

I've been busy with work and I did a load of towels today. Other than working and laundry, there's not much going on here. I did have a little nap this afternoon. I get so sleepy in the afternoon. I think it's from the medication I take. I still need to get in more steps today. I'll be taking the dogs for another walk. If Rocky doesn't get home too late, then we will take a walk around the apartment complex.

Barbara, Happy Thanksgiving! This just reminded me that this will be the first year in I don't remember how long that I won't be at my sister's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Guess I will be making it this year for us. Hope you enjoyed your day!! Good luck at the dr.'s tomorrow.

Nancy, that is so nice of you to help Deborah out with her sales.

Kitt, sorry about the mousse you bought. I hate when you notice something after you get back from the store.

Hope everyone has a great evening!! Take care!!

Hugs,

Lainie

Well, I did get to Deborah's but not until 1:30. We worked until 4:00......she was getting some things ready for a yard sale. She has many Columbia jackets and I put them in totes according to size. Then we put a few more things on the shelves. There is so many things to still be posted on her site. She has almost 600 postings now. Her goal before the end of the year is 1,000 (I think)

Kitt, did you check the store for the Griddler while you were there. Too bad about the mousse. My laundry got done and we also made a trip to Target before I went to Deborah's. I had a chocolate chip zucchini that someone gave me and I didn't care very much for it.

The dog trainer is coming by about 5:30 to check on Reese's. He is doing pretty well. I will touch base later.

Hello it's past morning already


Barb Happy Thanksgiving....enjoy the family time and the good food....

Nancy hope the rain stops so you can get some of the things done you wanted too...

I went to Walmart this morning and the Good Will, looking for some things we might use for the 5th wheel.....did not find a thing.....lol I bought mousse for my hair and darn if the top is not cracked and it won't come out...I have to take it back....this frustrates me....it's 18 miles one way to Wal mart....so not going back today....

I'm doing laundry as well....and catching up on a few house hold things

Barb my zucchini does not call for pineapple ..but have seen them that do...I tried a chocolate chip one per a request of my cousin....it was okay, Gary did not like it at all..so good thing it is going to my cousin....he loves it....

well time to get the laundry done....

Good morning everyone. A beautiful day here, looking out across the water, not a ripple on it, but it is cold. I'm sure it will warm up, as it's only 9 am.

I have 2 loads of laundry done, last load in the dryer. Will do another one later, then I'm caught up.

Will be putting my turkey in the over around 11, Tylneil is coming over so I can show her how to do it, and then I'll show her later how to make the gravy. They all love hot turkey sandwiches the next day so always make sure I make lots of gravy, yeah fattening, but so good.

I hope to have turkey left over to make a pot of turkey soup, that's what I enjoy.

I will be going to my knee specialist appointment tomorrow, over 3 hour to get to his office, and not too sure where I'm going so will allow 4 hours. i have a lot of questions now that I have this knee cap problem. The brace is really helping me.

Okay ladies, I am here early today and not forgetting. Drizzly here today...I was supposed to help Deborah at her storage units today, but we can't sit things out b/c of rain. I am waiting to hear if we can do something at the house. If I don't go there, I guess I will be cleaning....lol

Have a great day.

Barbara, you posted while I was writing my post. I do enjoy my "visits" with AJ on Skype. Actually the one we use is called ooVoo.........but it works just the same as Skype. Nice that you had such a lovely dinner with your cousin and her family. Now you will have a nice Thanksgiving dinner at your home tomorrow. I had a turkey dinner last week and it was so good.

have a good evening everyone.

Lainie, glad you got all stocked up on your fruits and veggies. Good that you can watch your recorded shows between confirming your appts.

Kitt, it will be nice to do the traveling that you and Gary so much like to do. I am not one for traveling much at all. I think it is great if it is something you want to do that you are able to do it.

I talked with Mtngrl today and she is feeling some better. Her hubby is taking really good care of her and she is beginning to see the light of day although she is still on pain meds. I feel so bad for her. I wouldn't want to wish shingles on anyone.

Heading south shortly

so good to hear you are home safe and sound Veronique.

Way to go Kitt on becoming a Snow Bird, you and Gary deserve to enjoy your retirement.

Nancy, that's good that you can see AJ on Skype.

Kitt what a nice Christmas gift to give out. I love zucchini bread, but haven't made any this year, do you put pineapple in yours? The recipe I use calls for it and makes it so moist.

Emily glad you are somewhat better, hope the next time we hear from you you are 100% better.

Nancy thanks for update on KathyJo.

Lainie, how did your game night go? HOpe everyone enjoyed the cake.

We had a lovely dinner with my cousin and her family. I made a point of loaded my plate with veggies, but I did eat dessert, she had a pumpkin bread pudding with a pralene sauce, yummy but fattening.

Am cooking my turkey tomorrow for Shannon and my son and dil. Ryan is already requesting that I cook lots, he wants to take some for lunches this week.

I did not make any dessert.

Hello Ladies!

Rocky and I went to Sprouts and Whole Foods this morning. We are well stocked on fresh fruits and veggies for the week. It was nice getting out and about this morning. Unfortunately, I'm back home and confirming appointments for our events tomorrow. I've already completed my first rounds of calls and about ready to start my next round. In between work, I'm relaxing watching some of my recorded shows from the week.

Veronique, welcome back! I hope you had a great vacation. Can't wait to hear about it.

Kitt, I'm surprised that no one else has posted yet today. That is so cool that you and Gary are going to be snow birds. Hope you have a great winter.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the day!! Take care!!

Hugs,

Lainie

Kitt, that is great about your 5th wheel and I hope it is ready when you are expecting. The goodies yo made for Christmas presents sound really yummy. The dried apples sound really good too. The day here was drizzly and kind of chilly.......Joey didn't come today b/c he was too tired after he finished what he had to do at church. He is coming in the morning.

Hello guys!
I am back. Quick message because we are really beat and have so many things to do... All is well, but we were surprised by the heat (I had to scrape the ice off the car the morning we left...). We had a bit of snow last Saturday and slush on Sunday.
All is well. I will message more tomorrow or Monday.

Hello Ladies!

I'm confirmed my last webinar today. I will be going to the grocery store afterwards to pick up a few things for our game night tonight. Rocky's brother and sister-in-law are coming over tonight. Marlene will be here as well. Rocky just requested I get a cake too. Guess he wants it as a birthday celebration too. We didn't have cake for his birthday. After I get back, I need to do some cleaning. I want everything to be spic and span for our guests. I'm going to let the dogs run around and play for a bit before I mop the floors. I should be able to watch part of the race before our guests come.

Emily, so glad you were able to stop by for a little visit. I've been praying for you. Hopefully, you will be better soon. I need to get my hair colored too. I also need a cut. Now I just need to find a place to go to here in Chula Vista or San Diego.

Nancy, sorry that Em and AJ can't come visit today. Thanks for the update on Kathy. I still have her in my prayers too.

Hope everyone has a great day! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

Emily, I am so happy you are some better. I wish you could say it is over, but maybe it won't be too much longer now. I am so glad you have been able to get some sleep the last 2 nights. Also happy the meds are helping. Don't worry about the skunk stripe in your hair, I am sure you only look like skunk (lol) and not smell like one......lol.....You are a dear friend and I am praying you will be well and strong again soon.

I talked with Kathy Jo and she is doing better than the beginning of the week. Her pain meds ran out and she was w/o any (no fault of hers).....the meds had been put on "lock-down" and no one was filling Rx's for them. The doctor's office (after 2 days) was able to find some for her and she is (only today) starting to get back to where she was. She was really miserable but getting better.

Kitt, Kathy said you could call if/when you have time or she will call you next Tuesday when you probably won't have company.

Okay Veronique......we are waiting for you........lo. Hopefully Cathy will be back soon too. We have really missed all of our Ruby ladies....

HI everyone!

I just wanted to thank you all for the well wishes and positive thoughts.I saw the doctor on Wednesday and he said I have Post herpetic neuralgia. Then he prescribed some new pain medications and one that work on the inflamed nerves and another for the nausea. Not sure how I will react to these over time but I did finally get a full night's sleep the last 2 last nights.

I am not as sleepy as I was even though both the Fentanyl patch and Lyrica can cause drowsiness. At least I am able to be awake some during the day. Still very tired, everything is an effort and my right side still weak and painful, especially inside my ear and the back of my head and arm. I go back in two weeks for him to titrate the medication.

ps..a long time ago I told my DH that he is responsible for making sure my hair isn't turning too gray. He was directed to tell me to get my hair done ASAP. Well Thursday he brought that up and again Friday and this morning..just doing his duty I guess. Maybe I'll call and make an appointment for 2 weeks from now. My skunk stripe at my part is pretty impressive!
My work friend used to do that for me since she was 3 inches taller and could see before I could but Joe is filling her shoes!

Be safe everyone and I'll check back when I can.

Barb, When we lived in NC, Costco was an hour away so we joined the Sam's club which was a lot closer. When we came back to VA where Costco is 1/2 hr. away we joined again. They do have some good buys.

Will try to call Kathy Jo again today.. we should hear from Veronique and hopefully Cathy will be able to come back soon too.

Joey (Em's husband) is coming here today and will be here tomorrow b/c Larry and h e are making him a "hunting" house. Em is dog sitting so she and AJ have to stay home emoticon . I do see AJ on Skype most every day. He is just the cutest little guy.

Have a great day..

Wow Lainie, great weight loss. Keep up the good job.

Nancy that's a good deal on that grill. I used to have a membership to Costco, but we have over 3 hours to get to it and found I might make it once a year, so let my membership go, just wasn't worth it for me.

Kitt, those dehydrated apples sound really good, did you find any pineapples.

Oh poor Emily, shingles are just horrible to get. My husband had them a few years ago. I know a lady that had them a couple of years ago and didn't see the doctor, by the time she did it was too late for any meds, so she went through h*ll, Kitt you know her, Mary Rainbow MF

Hope to soon hear from Veronique, Kathy Jo and Cathy, miss you guys.

Thank you, Nancy and Kitt, for the congrats on my loss! I totally forgot about putting it on the weight loss thread. I'll go there as soon as I finish here. I'm so sorry to hear that Emily is still dealing with the shingles. I'm praying that she gets better soon.

Yay, Lainie such a great weight loss.....Good for you. I can just see you getting on and off of the scales to see if it still registered the same....lol.... Don't forget to to put it on the weight loss thread on here. I like Costco.....I have been to BJ's, Sam's, and Costco and I think I like Costco best. I really like BJ's too, but we don't have one here.

Kitt, It is $70 at Costco....not $30.. it was $30 LESS at Costco than the other store we saw it.

I didn't get a chance to call Kathy Jo again, but I will try after dinner.

Hello Ladies!

I had a very pleasant surprise this morning. Today is weigh in day for the challenge I'm on with one of my other teams I'm on. I was hoping for a 2 lb loss. Instead I had a 12 lb loss. I couldn't believe it. I kept getting on and off the scale to make sure it was right. Each time I got on it said the same thing. I was retaining fluids last week. Plus, I had a 3 lb gain since my last dr.'s visit. I'm so happy for that loss. It really helps to motivate me to keep eating healthy and exercising. Last week we focused on healthy breakfast all week. This week we're focusing on improving our fitness level. This is exactly what I need. This challenge is a competition between two teams. We each have a job to do on our team. I'm the team cheerleader. Being on a challenge really helps to keep me motivated.

I took a break from writing this post to go to Walmart. We're having game night tomorrow night and Rocky wanted me to get a new Trivial Pursuit games. The ones I have are from the 80's and he says I will win every time. lol They didn't have any there. They will probably have them closer to Christmas. I'm back home getting ready to confirm the 7 p.m. webinar.

Nancy, Rocky wants me to get us a membership at Costco. I've never been before, but the gas prices are great and it's just down the road from us.

Barbara, glad to hear the windows are in and looking good.

Kitt, hope you were able to get the apples and pineapples that you want.

Hope everyone has a great evening! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

Barb, Thanks......so glad the work your man is doing is coming along well and you are happy with it.

Kitt, we did find some good buys at Costco.....

Lainie, I saw onFB you lost 12 lbs. this week......that is emoticon ...don't forget to put it on the weight loss thread.....How exciting for you and I am so proud of you.....We all know you can do it.

Our Foreman grill is beginning to have the coating come off so we wanted to buy a new one. We got a Cuisinart Griddler and it does so much..If you couldn't have many pots/pans, this would be great appliance to have We found it $30. less at Costco than Bed, Bath, & Beyond. The plates come out and can go into the d/w . You can grill, make panini sandwiches, flat sandwiches, lots of things. I can't wait to use it. It is a little smaller than other one but our other one was really big. A nice "many uses" appliance.

Well, I am expecting Veronique to check in with us this weekend. She was coming home on Thursday and said she would be back on SP over the weekend. It will be so good to hear from her. I called Kathy Jo this afternoon and had to leave a message. I told her she could call me back or I would try her another time.

Reese's has been behaving so good the last couple of days. He did steal for 2 days, but didn't eat anything (he never does). The trainer said I should have called him...He said it was probably the full moon. He is stopping by after the shop closes today. Reese's just went right to him when we took him to get his nails done....It might truly have been the moon, b/c the last 2 days, he hasn't tried to steal anything.......lol

Hi everyone. It's a beautiful sunny fall day.

Lainie that mall wouldn't be my choice of stores, too expensive, I'm also a Walmart, Target girl. But the restaurant did sound good.

Nancy, well done on the steps. Yes, I'm hoping the snow stays away for quite a while.

Not much going on today, Fred is here putting molding around a couple of windows, and then he is finished for the week, will be back next week. But what he has done looks really good.

Good morning. Yesterday I had 10,117 steps......that is the first time in quite a while that I got over 10K steps. We were really busy at the joint center and then we ran errands when I got home. Going to Costco this morning Chance of rain today and all weekend. We had plans for going to an apple festival and then on Sunday going to hunt camp. I will check in later.

Barb, maybe by getting the tires on now, the snow will be delayed......lol....Had a great day at the joint center....really busy......I have almost 10K steps so far today..only need 300 and a little more...not sure I will get it b/c I am heading south shortly...a beautiful sunny day here too. We ran a few errands after I got back from the hospital.

Kitt, I need to call Kathy Jo again, maybe tomorrow. Just call her anytime and you can just leave a message if you don't get her and she will call you back. Just tell her a good time to call you......

Lainie, you meal last night sounds really yummy. The mall is way above my shopping style too. I am glad you were able to find some shirts at Target for Rocky. You will do fine going to the store on your own...... emoticon .

Hello Everyone!

We had a great time this evening. I got in a lot of walking. So, Stacked is located at the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego. That place is great. There's an iPad at every table to order your food. You can set up your own burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and sides. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. Rocky ordered this delicious mac & cheese with parmesan bread crumbs and shavings of parmesan cheese. It was delicious. I had a couple of bites of it. I had Fresca to drink. I haven't had that in forever. The malls they have in Southern California are open malls. You look up and you see the sky. It's really awesome, except that tonight there were some smokers there. We walked throughout the mall. I felt to uncomfortable there. Everything is designer. We walked into Louis Vuitton, just so we could say we were there. They have Armani, Bebe, and Prada just to name a few. Plus, they have large stores like Macy's, Nordstom's, and Nieman Marcus. Very high end in deed. They also have JC Penney, which is more my league. I'm a Walmart girl. lol

After the mall, we went to Target and did some more walking. I bought Rocky 3 shirts there for his birthday. We walked all around that store too. Then on the way, we stopped at a frozen yogurt place that he loves and I got a small container of it. It was a great evening overall. I liked the restaurant and we will probably go back.

This afternoon I am going to the DMV to get my license plates. I sure hope that it won't take long since I have the paperwork and just need to get the VIN and mileage documented. AnnMarie is going to confirm the 7:00 webinar if I don't get done in time. If I don't get done in time, then I'm thinking of going to Walmart to do a little grocery shopping. I haven't decided for sure yet. I will be so glad to get this done and out of the way. I'm just a little nervous about driving there, but I have my route mapped out so I should be okay.

Nancy, I hope you enjoy your time at the joint center today.

Barbara, I'm so glad I don't have to worry about snow. I hope for your sake that you don't get it until December.

Kitt, thank you for the birthday wishes for Rocky. I appreciate that. He has a great birthday. I hope that you're done with all the canning now and can hopefully relax a little.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the day!! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

Good morning.

I have to go to town and have snow tires put on my husband's car today. It's that time of year and we don't want to be caught without them on. Hope not to see any snow until December, but you never know.

Lainie, can't wait to hear how supper went last night. I think that's good to try the new meds and see if it wasn't something else.

Nancy, enjoy your time at the joint center. I am doing some laundry this morning too.

I's a beautiful sunny day, but very windy.
